What you need to know about the 76ers
The 76ers picked up a 110-102 victory over the Detroit Pistons on Thursday. Center Joel Embiid was the offensive standout of the contest for Philadelphia, dropping a double-double on 30 points and 18 rebounds. Embiid is listed as questionable for this matchup, and it's always a good idea to monitor his status as he battles a knee injury. Philadelphia continues to be without Ben Simmons indefinitely as the team explores trade options.
The Sixers lean on Tobias Harris (19.4 ppg), Seth Curry (15.4 ppg), Tyrese Maxey (14.4 ppg) and Shake Milton (13 ppg) for a lot of their offense. That's especially true in any game where Embiid (21.4 ppg) is out or limited.
What you need to know about the Hawks
Meanwhile, Atlanta received a tough blow on Thursday as the Hawks fell 122-111 to the Washington Wizards. The losing side was boosted by power forward John Collins, who posted a double-double on 28 points and 12 boards. His presence inside has been a big factor in Atlanta ranking second in the NBA in rebounding at 51.2 per game.
Trae Young is the catalyst offensively for Atlanta, leading the team with 24.2 points and 10 assists per game. Collins is next at 17.6 points per game, while Cam Reddish has been a boost off the bench with 16.2 points per game.
