Preview: The Hawks travel to Philly for the second straight game against the 76ers | Tech US News


The Atlanta Hawks will play their second of two games in a row against the Philadelphia 76ers, this time in the City of Brotherly Love. The first one went pretty well for the home team, as Trae Young led the team to a 104-95 victory with 26 points and seven assists.

Young matched 76ers big man Joel Embiid, who also had 26 points and 13 rebounds. Additionally, it was a complete offensive performance for the Hawks as all five starters were in double figures and Onyeka Okongwu came off the bench to provide 10 points and 11 rebounds.

It will take that type of team performance again to beat a projected championship contender on their home court. The guard tandem of Trae Young (27.5 points and 9.2 assists per game) and Dejounte Murray (21.6 points, 6.2 rebounds, 8.1 assists and 2.3 steals per game) must continue to work well between them

On the other side of the court, they won’t just be facing the runner-up for the last two MVP awards in Embiid (27.8 points and 10 rebounds per game). Tyrese Maxey has had an increased workload in James Harden’s absence, while Tobias Harris remains a viable scoring option at forward. PJ Tucker has struggled offensively, but can still be a defensive presence.


For the Hawks, Bogdan Bogdanovic is still out recovering from a knee injury.

The 76ers will have to do without James Harden as he recovers from a right foot strain. Forward Paul Reed is also questionable with a right knee contusion.


According to DK Sportsbook, the 76ers are 3.5-point favorites over the Hawks on Saturday night.
