Philadelphia 76ers vs Atlanta Hawks Betting Preview and Prediction | NBA Playoffs
NBA Eastern Conference Round 2 NBA Playoffs Game 4 (PHI leads 2-1)
Philadelphia 76ers (49-23, 20-16 Away) vs. Atlanta Hawks (41-31, 25-11 Home)
Date: Monday, June 14, 2021
Time: 7:30 pm EST
Venue: State Farm Arena – Atlanta, GA
The Philadelphia 76ers managed to win Game 3 in Atlanta. However, the price for the win was losing Danny Green to a calf injury for, potentially, the next 2-3 weeks. The 76ers lost Green early in the game and still managed to cruise to a 16-point victory. Perhaps the most noteworthy stat in this game for the 76ers is that Joel Embiid, Ben Simmons and Seth Curry all played under 35 minutes. The only Sixer with more than 35 minutes of play was Tobias Harris, with 38 minutes. This means the 76ers will be well-rested before Game 4. This is concerning news for the Atlanta Hawks, who need Embiid to be as tired as possible if they want a chance to win more games.
Speaking of the Hawks, Game 3 went pretty well for them. A total of 111 points should put any team in a close game in the NBA Playoffs, but this team simply can not defend all of the weapons Philadelphia has at their expense. Trae Young, John Collins and Bogdan Bogdanovic all shot the ball well, but the 76ers shot 58.2% from the field. There’s not much you can do when you give up 127 points with that type of efficiency. The Hawks need to see Game 4 as a must-win, because it is doubtful they will overcome a 3-1 series deficit.
