ATL: Grow, Don’t Fade

The Atlanta Hawks failed to earn another win in Game 2 against the Sixers in their last game. Despite being competitive throughout, they showed their inexperience as they struggled through the fourth quarter.

The Hawks were outscored 18 to 27 in the fourth quarter, shooting just 26.3% from the field and 3 of 10 from three-point range.

With all of their focus on Embiid, the Hawks gave up 18 of Philly’s 27 fourth-quarter points to the Sixers’ bench players. If Atlanta wants to regain control of the series, they need to focus in through four quarters.

Hawks Key Player: (G) Kevin Huerter

Kevin Huerter hasn’t grown into the player that the Hawks think he can be quite yet. But the sharpshooting guard was a bright spot in Atlanta’s Game 2 loss.

In 35 minutes of play, Huerter scored 20 points on 8 of 10 shooting from the field. He also converted on 3 of his 5 three-point field goal attempts.

The pressure on Trae Young to score is immense. Huerter is one of the few players on the Hawks that is a consistent threat from three and can support him.

PHI: Contain the Perimeter

The Philadelphia 76ers made some big changes, having been down just one game to the Atlanta Hawks. A large part of that was changing up defensive assignments, which led to their eventual success.

The Sixers were more aggressive closing out on the perimeter, limiting the Hawks to just 11 of 30 shooting from three. By making Ben Simmons the primary defender on Trae Young, Doc Rivers limited the young star to just 6 of 16 shooting from the field.

Their defensive effort will determine their success in this series. After setting a good standard in Game 2, the Sixers will need more of the same to take the lead in the series.

Sixers Key Player: (C) Joel Embiid

Down a game, Sixers forward Joel Embiid showed why he is one of the most intimidating players in the NBA. He was unstoppable on the offensive end, despite playing through injury.

In Game 2 Embiid posted 40 points, 13 rebounds, two steals, and a block in 36 minutes of play. He was efficient as well, shooting 13 of 25 from the field and 12 of 16 from the free-throw line.

When Embiid is engaged offensively, there’s no one in the NBA that can stop him one-on-one. As the Hawks will try to limit his production in Game 3, so Embiid should be prepared to make plays for others.
