Atlanta Hawks Form & Team News


Atlanta are red-hot with 11 wins in their last 13 games and impressively dispatched New York in the last round.

Trae Young’s last-gasp game-winner capped off a 32-point display and silenced MSG as Atlanta took Game 1 107-15.

Young then put up 30 in Game 2 but it was not enough to prevent a 101-92 loss in the Garden.

The Hawks star had his quietest game of the series so far in Game 3 but Atlanta were still able to win 105-94.

He got back to something like his best with 27 points and 9 assists in a 113-96 win in Game 4.

Young then silenced MSG once again in Game 5 as his 36 points played a key role in a 103-89 series-sealing blowout of the Knicks.

They will now face Philadelphia with no new names on the injury report.

Brandon Goodwin (illness) and Cam Reddish (Achilles) remain out indefinitely.

Philadelphia 76ers Form & Team News


Philadelphia made pretty straightforward work of Washington in the previous round.

Tobias Harris racked up 37 points and Joel Embiid added 30 as they won Game 1 125-118.

Embiid and Ben Simmons then combined for 44 points as the Sixers doubled their advantage with a 120-95 blow-out of the Wizards.

Embiid then ran riot in Game 3 as his 36-point haul inspired Philly to a 132-103 rout.

The All-Star center went down hurt in Game 4 though and a reeling 76ers team were beaten 122-114.

Embiid sat out Game 5, but Tobias Harris (28) and Seth Curry (30) filled the void to lead Philadelphia to a series-clinching 129-112 win.

But can they continue to overcome the injury to Embiid?

He is considered day-to-day with a knee injury, but even if he does play in Game 1 he will not be fully fit.
