Hawks to Win on Spread (+3)
After a crazy Game 5 in which the Hawks overcame a 20-point deficit in the last 15 minutes to win the game, they now have a match ball in Game 6, which will be played in front of their own fans. We believe in this Hawks team and we think that they will make the Eastern Conference finals, much to everyone’s surprise. But our top Hawks vs 76ers prediction is for the Hawks to win on spread, just in case.
Joel Embiid Over 33.5 Total Points
Even though Joel Embiid dominated most of the time in this series, he struggled in the fourth quarters of the last two games. Whether his previous injury is bugging him or he is having issues with his conditioning, we don’t know. But we do know that despite these struggles, Embiid puts up 32 points per game in the series against the Hawks, so we expect to see a similar scoring output from him the crucial Game 6.
Trae Young Over 27.5 Total Points
The young playmaker has been dealing with a shoulder injury in the past few games of the series, which certainly affected his shooting at least a bit. However, Young has been phenomenal in the series since he averages 29.6 points and 10.8 assists per game. Since the Hawks have a chance to make it to the finals in the East if they win the next game in Atlanta, we expect to see Trae Young score at least 28 points in this game.
Game 6 Hawks vs 76ers preview – Will the Hawks cause a huge upset and make the Eastern Conference Finals?
These playoffs have been great for Atlanta since they are one game away from being in the Conference Finals in the East and eliminating the top seeded team in Philadelphia 76ers. So, let’s check both teams out in more detail ahead of this all-important game:
Not many people expected to see the Hawks in this position before the playoffs – partially since they were the 5th seed in the East, partly because of their lack of experience in the playoffs. However, the Hawks surprised us so far, first by eliminating the Knicks in five games, then by taking the 3-2 lead in the series with the first seed in the East, Philadelphia 76ers. In addition to this, the Hawks were without De’Andre Hunter, Brandon Goodwin, and Cam Reddish for all games in the Hawks vs 76ers series – and they will be without them in Game 6 as well.
The 76ers seemed to be back in control after taking the 2-1 lead despite losing the first game of the series on their home court. However, the 76ers lost the last two games in the series, including the shocking loss in Game 5 after leading by 22 points at the half time. The minor meniscus injury is clearly bothering Embiid, while Danny Green is out for Game 6 with a calf injury. In any case, the 76ers will have to dig deep if they want to stay in the series and secure Game 7 in Philadelphia.
