While Game 5’s are typically hard-fought defensive games, the Wizards and Hawks have been playing so fast in the first halves of their series, that we could see a higher scoring first half in Washington, DC tonight for our NBA pick of the day.

At 101 ½, I love the over here for several reasons, but the main one just being that it’s an enormous value.</p><p>With a game total at 213 and growing, I literally had to look twice when I saw the first half number. These two teams have played at a pace of over 106 possessions per 48 minutes in the first halves of their four games so far in this series.</p><p>The pace is good so far, but the scoring has been another story, especially for the Wizards in the first halves of this series. However, a trip home should help even though those were both lower scoring first halves. The biggest thing for me in putting my <a href="" title="Follow NBA Experts For Free Picks">NBA Pick</a> on the first half over is my faith that shots will start falling for the Wizards.</p><p>After two poor shooting performances from everyone except John Wall in Games 3 and 4, Washington should benefit from a home game after two on the road. The Hawks dropped 64 first half points in Game 3 in their first home game of the series and with the hope that the Hawks can carry over their offense and not their defense early in Game 5, I’m taking a stab at the first half over.</p><p> </p><h2 style="text-align:center"><strong>Free NBA Pick: </strong>Over 101½ 1H </h2><h2 style="text-align:center">Best Line Offered: <a href=";book=5dimes" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Top Rated At Sportsbook Review">at 5Dimes</a></h2><p>[/]{"component":"oddswidget", "eventId":3189261, "sportsbooksIds":[19,1275,92,123,1096], "LineTypeId":3, "PeriodTypeId":2 }[/]</p>
