Philadelphia 76ers vs Atlanta Hawks Date and Time: Tuesday, June 15,2021 5:00 AM IST Venue: State Farm Arena, Atlanta, GA. Prediction: Atlanta Hawks Bookmaker: 1xbet
The Atlanta Hawks will look to even the series at two games apiece when they host the Philadelphia 76ers at State Farm Arena on their match. The 76ers took the lead early in Game 3 and never let go. The Hawks were left scratching and clawing their way out of the deficit the entire night.
Trae Young had a great game but unfortunately, it wasn’t enough to get a win. The Atlanta Hawks now have another opportunity to grab a win in front of their home crowd to avoid going down 1-3 in the Eastern Conference Semifinals of the 2021 NBA playoffs.
The Philadelphia 76ers are in a prime position to take a commanding 3-1 lead over the Atlanta Hawks. They control the pace of the game and choke the Hawks players with their sublime defense. Matisse Thybulle, Ben Simmons and Danny Green have been excellent in guarding Trae Young on switches and Joel Embiid is guarding the paint with authority.
The Philadelphia 76ers are the favorites to take a 3-1 series lead over the Atlanta Hawks. The latter has had no answers for the 76ers defense and Joel Embiid is having his way in the paint. Although he is great at grabbing boards, Clint Capela needs to be more assertive on the defensive end.
However, with Danny Green missing, one can expect the Hawks to grab a win at home. The Philadelphia 76ers’ spacing and shooting has taken a hit and Green’s defensive prowess will be missed as well. Trae Young and co. need to capitalize on this opportunity and even the series at 2-2.
