NBA Playoffs: Philadelphia 76ers at Atlanta Hawks – Game 6
The Hawks trailed by 25 points with just over three minutes left in the third quarter of Game 5, yet somehow fought all the way back for what could potentially be a season defining win. After all, the Hawks were 14-20 on March first, and here they sit, one game from an Eastern Conference Finals appearance.
Philadelphia blew an 18-point lead in Game 4, and is now in a must-win situation with their season on the line. After meltdowns in the fourth quarter in back-to-back games, they will be desperate to close strong with a win to force a Game 7.
Young (shoulder) is probable. De’Andre Hunter (knee), Brandon Goodwin (minor respiratory condition) and Cam Reddish (right Achilles soreness) all remain out for Atlanta.
Embiid (meniscus) is questionable for Philadelphia, and don’t be shocked if the Sixers make him a game-time decision yet again. Danny Green (calf strain) has been ruled out for two to three weeks.
For those interested, the 76ers opens as a 3-point favorite for Game 6 as the series returns to Atlanta with the Sixers on the ropes. The Hawks will be underdogs for the sixth straight game vs. Philadelphia, with a chance to close out a series win on their home floor.
