Sixers Look to Keep Rolling Against Hawks

The 76ers will be taking on the Atlanta Hawks for the 2nd time in 3 days at the Wells Fargo Center. The Sixers were victorious last time out against Atlanta with a thrashing 127-83 win. This will be the last time the Sixers and Hawks face off in the regular season, and the winner will hold the series victory.

It was apparent that the short-handed Hawks team could not compete with a healthy Sixers squad. The injury list for Atlanta will be full tonight as well. Tony Snell, Bogdan Bogdanovic, Clint Capela, and Trae Young are all questionable. The Hawks also have three players ruled as out; Kevin Huerter, De'Andre Hunter, and Cam Reddish.

The 76ers are still making their push for the one seed in the Eastern Conference. Now 1.5 games back, every game will be crucial. Getting a victory against the Hawks tonight will be huge for the momentum moving forward.

Joel Embiid only logged 25 minutes Wednesday night which is a good sight, and I would like to see that again tonight (unless we are getting blown out, of course). It is pretty clear that the MVP is basically out of reach, and all the focus should be on getting home-court advantage throughout the playoffs.

Ben Simmons looked like the Ben Simmons Philadelphia fell in love with on Wednesday. His defense and transition playmaking were both S-tier. Him peaking at the right time could pay huge dividends for the Sixers.

We would all love to see a Seth Curry masterclass as we did last time out. When Seth and Danny are hot, we are pretty dang hard to beat.
