76ers vs Hawks Prediction

Hawks to Win on Spread (+6.5)

We predicted a close Game 1 in the 76ers vs Hawks series, but we expected the 76ers to be without Joel Embiid. However, Embiid ended up on the court after all, which didn’t slow down the Hawks at all. They came into the game with a lot of confidence and were quickly up by double digits, leading by more than 20 points at one point in the third quarter. And while the 76ers managed to get back into the game eventually with the Hawks struggling to deal with their full-court press in the final minutes of the game, the young Hawks did win in the end to take a break in the series. We expect the Hawks to put up a similar show in Game 2, so our first 76ers vs Hawks prediction is for the Hawks to win on the spread.

Joel Embiid Over 30.5 Total Points

Even though the center was under question for Game 1 and many people didn’t expect him to play, he did play and he finished the game with 39 points. Joel Embiid has been amazing this season, which is why he is one of the finalists for the MVP award despite missing a huge chunk of games in the regular season. Not much can be done to stop Embiid when he is healthy, even though we thought that Capella might be able to limit him to a certain extent. This was proven wrong in Game 1, so our next 76ers vs Hawks prediction is for Embiid to score more than 30 points in Game 2.

Bogdan Bogdanovic Over 16.5 Total Points

While the Hawks were up by more than 20 points in the third quarter and seemingly in control of the game, the 76ers had a run in the fourth and it seemed that they might be able to steal the game after all. But then Bogdan Bogdanovic hit a huge three 40 seconds before the end of the game to put the Hawks up by six points once again. In the end, he finished with 21 points, despite going cold in the second half until that clutch three. The Serbian guard has been one of the more important players for the Hawks this season and he is not afraid of big moments, so our final 76ers vs Hawks prediction is for Bogdanovic to score more than 16 points.

76ers vs Hawks preview – Can the 76ers get back on track?

The Hawks have taken the home-court advantage from the 76ers by winning Game 1 in Philadelphia, but this series has just started and we will probably see a lot of exciting moments in the future. So, let’s take a closer look at both teams.

Philadelphia 76ers

The 76ers have come into the playoffs as the first seed in the Eastern Conference and they’ve eliminated the Wizards without much trouble to justify their favorites tag. But the Hawks have proven to be a much tougher opponent after they managed to take the home-court advantage from the 76ers in Game 1. Joel Embiid was deemed questionable ahead of Game 1, although he did play in the end. He is still listed as the game-time decision for Game 2, but he will probably suit up for this game as well.

Atlanta Hawks

The young Atlanta Hawks team continues to surprise everyone. After losing just once to the Knicks in the first round as the lower seed, they’ve immediately gotten a break against Philadelphia in Game 1. The Hawks did so even with the 76ers in full strength, while missing a few rotational players. Cam Reddish, Brandon Goodwin, and Kris Dunn are all out for Game 2, while De’Andre Hunter, who also missed Game 1, is questionable and listed as a game-time decision.
