2014 NBA Summer League: Hawks vs. Wizards Video Highlights

The Atlanta Hawks opened their 2014 Summer League schedule against the Washington Wizards on Saturday, but it was not the start the Hawks hoped for as they lost 90-74.

Second-year Wizards players Glen Rice Jr. and Otto Porter combined for 47 points in the game. Porter had 25 points on 11-of-16 shooting, while Rice Jr. made 14-of-16 foul shots and finished with 22 points.

Atlanta trailed 23-17 after the first quarter, but did a great job defensively in the second and limited Washington to just 12 points, while the Hawks dropped 24 in the period to take a 41-35 lead into halftime.

However, the second half was all Wizards as they outscored the Hawks 55-33 and won the game easily by double-digits.

First-round draft pick Adreian Payne led Atlanta with 12 points and seven rebounds in his debut, while Mike Muscala added 11 points and Lamar Patterson chipped in with 10.
