|The Miami Heat threw as much as they could against the Milwaukee Bucks and still came up short. While the Heat were defeated by a single basket, Milwaukee didn’t even play their best basketball. Sure to improve on their range in Game 2, the Bucks are likely to go up 2-0 in the series.|

PHI: Keep the Bench Production Coming!
The Philadelphia 76ers have been playing through Joel Embiid to find success in their more recent matches, but in Game 3 they were bale to rely on their role payers to see them through.
In Game 3, the Sixers bench combined to score 48 of the teams 127 points. Furkan Korkmaz and Dwight Howard were particularly effective, shooting 26 of the bench unit’s points.
While the Sixers stars are more than capable of scoring the ball, it’s the bench that will help against the eventual Atlanta Hawks runs. If they can maintain their productivity, the Sixers can put the Hawks on the brink of elimination.
Sixers Key Player: (G) Ben Simmons

The Philadelphia 76ers are a totally different animal when Ben Simmons is aggressive. In Game 3 against the Hawks, he showed that he’s not a concern on offence.
Simmons closed out Game 3 against the Hawks with 18 points, seven assists, and four rebounds on 7 of 11 shooting from the field. He still needs to improve on his free throw shooting though, as he shot just 4 of 8 from the line.
Head coach Doc Rivers said in an interview that Simmons was being too passive in the first have, which followed with them featuring Simmons in the post. As long as Simmons is a threat to score, the Sixers will almost always be favored.
ATL: Take Away Easy Baskets
After Game 3 against the Sixers interim head coach Nate McMillan was candid in his thoughts, citing Atlanta’s inability to stop their opponents as the primary reason for their lack of success.
Philadelphia was scorching hot at the rim, shooting 25 of 30 when they got to the basket. Capela, for all of his intimidation, wasn’t particularly effective defending the rim in this game.
The Hawks executed their offence decently in Game 3, they just failed to convert on a number of shots. but if they continue to allow the Sixers easy baskets, they’ll doom themselves early one again. Their offence is capable, so making scoring difficult for the Sixers is priority number one.
Hawks Key Player: (G) Trae Young
.@TheTraeYoung notched 28 PTS & 8 AST in Game 3.
— Atlanta Hawks (@ATLHawks) June 12, 2021
Hawks All-Star point guard Trae Young recovered well after his Game 2 disappointment in Philadelphia. young found his range again, also doing well to get to the free throw line.
Young finished Game 3 with 28 points, eight assists, and two steals on 9 of 17 shooting from the field. He was instrumental in Atlanta’s late but ultimately unsuccessful fourth quarter run, scoring 10 of the Hawks’ 36 in the final frame.
Young is doing all he can, but his playmaking needs to maintain its current course. He can’t outscore the Sixers alone, so creating opportunities for his teammates is key for the Hawks’ success.
