Philadelphia 76ers at Atlanta Hawks Predictions & Tips


Philadelphia can force Game 7 on the home court by winning on the road.

The 76ers inexplicably blew a 22-point half-time lead and were outscored 69-44 in the second half of Game 5.

That is unlikely to have been the start of an epic collapse though and Joel Embiid was impressive again despite his injury.

Therefore we could see Philadelphia win this one and force a winner-takes-all clash at home.

  • Philadelphia 76ers have led at half-time in 4 of the 5 games so far
  • Philadelphia 76ers’ Joel Embiid is averaging 32 points and 13 rebounds per game in this series
  • 4 of the 5 games so far have been settled by 4 points or less
  • 3 of the last 4 games have produced -225.5 total points

Head To Head


  • Philadelphia 76ers lead the all-time series 204-195
  • Philadelphia 76ers lead the all-time playoff series 8-4

Philadelphia 76ers Form & Team News


Philadelphia know that defeat in Game 6 will end their season following their epic collapse in Game 5.

Philadelphia made straightforward work of Washington in the first round with a 4-1 series lead, but this series with Atlanta has been anything but straightforward.

Star man Joel Embiid tore his meniscus against Washington but the injury did not slowed him down though the first three games.

Embiid put up 39 points and nine rebounds as the 76ers lost the first game 128-125, and then topped that with 40 points and 13 rebounds as Philly bounced back to take Game 2, 118-102.

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.

He looked much better as he amassed 37 points and 13 rebounds in Game 5, but the 76ers blew a 22-point half-time lead and were outscored 40-19 in the final quarter as they lost 109-106.

Embiid is not listed on the injury report for Game 6, but Danny Green (calf) is out until early July.

Atlanta Hawks Form & Team News


Atlanta have a chance to complete an upset series win after winning in Philadelphia for the second time.

Trae Young and Clint Capela were the stars of the show as the Hawks upset New York in round one and they have been crucial to Atlanta taking a 3-1 series lead over the 76ers.

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.

Young then went for 39 points in Game 5, with 25 of them coming in Atlanta’s sensational second-half surge that saw them erase a 22-point half-time deficit to win 109-106.

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