Atlanta @ Philadelphia
Regular Season Records: Atlanta 4-1; Philadelphia 4-1
What to Know
The Philadelphia 76ers and the Atlanta Hawks will battle for a spot in the playoff semifinals at 1 p.m. ET June 6 at Wells Fargo Center. Averaging 124 points per contest, the Philadelphia squad has been an offensive juggernaut in the playoffs, so hopefully Atlanta's defense is prepared for a test.
The 76ers didn't have too much trouble with the Washington Wizards at home this past Wednesday as they won 129-112. Shooting guard Seth Curry (30 points) and power forward Tobias Harris (28 points) were the top scorers for Philadelphia. Curry had some trouble finding his footing against the Wizards when the two teams last met earlier in the regular season, so this was a step in the right direction. Seth Curry's points were the most he has had all season.
Meanwhile, the Hawks earned some more postseason success in their matchup this past Wednesday. They took down the New York Knicks 103-89. Atlanta can attribute much of their success to point guard Trae Young, who had 36 points and nine assists.
Philadelphia is expected to win this handily, but they should have beaten the Cleveland Cavaliers Feb. 27 easily too and instead slipped up with a 112-109. In other words, don't count Atlanta out just yet.
