Philadelphia 76ers Form & Team News


Philadelphia made pretty straightforward work of Washington in the first round. They followed up a comfortable home win with a couple of blowouts before the Wizards could finally get a win on the board.

The 76ers quickly snubbed out any hope that Washington had of a comeback though, running out 129-112 winners in Game 4.

It was not all good news for Philly though as star man Joel Embiid tore his meniscus. That injury has not slowed him down in this series just yet, but can he continue at this pace?

Embiid put up 39 points and nine rebounds as the 76ers lost the first game 128-125. He then topped that with 40 points and 13 rebounds in Game 2, and this time it was not in vain.

Philadelphia won the matchup 118-102 to level the series ahead of the double-header in Atlanta.

Embiid remains listed as questionable on the injury report and at some point the 76ers may need to rest him or limit his minutes. The good news for Philadelphia is that he is the only player listed heading into Game 3.

Atlanta Hawks Form & Team News


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

Trae Young and Clint Capela were the stars of the show as they started the series with a win in NY and finished it with a blowout win at MSG.

Young averaged 29.2 points per game and Capela averaged 13.4 rebounds per game in that series.
They have looked pretty sharp for much of this series too.

Young racked up 35 points and 10 assists while Capela chipped in with 10 rebounds as the Hawks took Game 1, 128-124. Young went cold in the second half of Game 2 and Capela was much less of a force in the paint. 

That resulted in a 118-102 defeat to cap off the double-header in Philly.

There was further bad news with De’Andre Hunter (knee) joining Brandon Goodwin (illness) and Cam Reddish (Achilles) on the sidelines. The Hawks will be hoping that Kris Dunn can return though, after he missed Game 2 through illness.
