PHI: Offensive Consistency
If you looked at the Sixers’ box score from the last match, it wouldn’t come off as a terrible performance. However, the timeliness of their scoring wasn’t there, showing they need to maintain their effort through four quarters.
Despite winning the first half by 13 points, the Sixers lost the second half by 16 points, showing their lack of consistency. Key in their struggles was Tobias Harris, who failed to score in the fourth quarter.
The Sixers need to be more focused offensively in Game 5. Trae Young has been able to execute the Hawks’ offense despite Philly’s defense, so the Sixers’ stars need to be able to do the same to stay competitive.
Sixers Key Player: (C) Joel Embiid

In a crucial game, Joel Embiid fell flat with his performance. He was dreadful from the field and will need to bounce back to retake the lead in this series.
In Game 4 against the Hawks, Embiid posted just 17 points, but 21 rebounds on 4 of 20 shooting from the field. To say he was inefficient was an understatement.
It was a particularly dreadful game by Embiid, which he is unlikely to repeat. His efficiency is sure to improve, and his uptick in rebounding was a welcome sight in light of his scoring struggles.
ATL: Get Off to a Stronger Start
The Atlanta Hawks are coming off of a statement victory over the Philadelphia 76ers. In that game they showed their resolve, overcoming an early deficit to win the match.
Atlanta struggled in the first quarter of Game 4, shooting just 25% from the field and hitting seven field goals.
Without home-court advantage, the Hawks must be competitive from the jump. They can’t afford to enter Game 6 on the brink of elimination.
Hawks Key Player: (G) Trae Young

Trae Young made it a point to get his team going from the outset. While his scoring efficiency wasn’t something to be proud of, he showed that he’s more than capable of creating for others.
Trae Young posted 25 points, 18 assists, and just two turnovers in 40 minutes of play. He was just 8 of 26 from the field and hit just 3 of 11 three-point field goal attempts.
Young will see the same defensive pressure going into Game 5, but his stellar playmaking is a good sign for Atlanta’s chances.
