Atlanta Hawks Form & Team News


Atlanta impressed as they dispatched the league’s best defence, the New York Knicks, in round one of the playoffs.

Trae Young and Clint Capela were the stars of the show as Young averaged 29.2 points per game and Capela averaged 13.4 rebounds per game.

The pair have been crucial to Atlanta being tied at 2-2 with Philadelphia in this series as they prepare to head out on the road for Game 5.

Young racked up 35 points and 10 assists while Capela chipped in with 10 rebounds as the Hawks took Game 1 with a 128-124 victory in Philadelphia.

The pair dipped in a 118-102 defeat in Game 2 but had solid performances in Game 3, with Young putting up 28 points and Capela contributing 16 rebounds in a 127-111 defeat.

Young added another 25 points and 18 assists to his postseason collection in Game 4, but more importantly Clint Capela (13 rebounds) and John Collins (12 rebounds) took advantage of Joel Embiid’s struggles to help the Hawks win 103-100.

Atlanta now have a chance to get ahead in the series but they will have to do it without De’Andre Hunter (knee), Brandon Goodwin (illness) and Cam Reddish (Achilles.

Embiid put up 39 points and nine rebounds as the 76ers lost the first game 128-125, but they bounced back to take Game with a 118-102 victory in which Embiid topped his previous display with 40 points and 13 rebounds.

Embiid was not has hot in a 127-111 Game 3 win too, racking up 27 points, but his knee problem appeared to catch up with him as they 76ers were edged out 103-100 in Game 4 in Atlanta.

His fitness is now a major concern heading into Game 5, but he is not listed on the injury report despite the extent of his knee problem being common knowledge.

Danny Green (calf) continues to be listed though, with reports suggesting he will not return until July if Philadelphia do advance.
