The Washington Wizards advanced to the second round after beating the Atlanta Hawks in game six on Friday. It was a big step for a team hoping to make a deep run in the playoffs.
But while expectations are high for the Wizards, they didn’t lose sight of having a little bit of fun en route to their series-clinching win. Point guard John Wall, the star of the series, took some time to trash talk a few famous Hawks fans sitting courtside:

Wall backed that trash-talk up to the tune of 42 points, eight assists, and four steals.
After the win, Wall was asked about the incident and gave an all-time great response with some help from his teammate Bradley Beal.

They did that. For the culture.
Great stuff from Wall who dominated the Hawks all series. If you can back up some friendly trash talk, you gotta let it fly.
