NBA Eastern Conference Round 2 NBA Playoffs Game 5 (Series tied 2-2)
Atlanta Hawks (41-31, 16-20 Away) vs. Philadelphia 76ers (49-23, 29-7 Home)

Venue: Wells Fargo Center – Philadelphia, PA
We officially have a series on our hands. Trae Young managed to score the final six points in Game 4. Young still came up with 25 points to lead the Hawks, despite shooting 3-11 from three-point range. He will need to play better if the Hawks are to win Game 5.
The 76ers needed to win Game 4. Joel Embiid looks like he is really laboring out on the court, and it showed in his play. Embiid finished the game shooting 4-20 from the field for just 17 points. The 76ers needed to win Game 4 so they could close out the series in five games, because Embiid needs time to rest and heal before the conference finals. Now, they will need to not only win to stay on top in the series, but they will also need to win in Atlanta in Game 6 to ensure the series ends as soon as possible.
