Hawks-76ers NBA Playoffs Betting Preview
This series is tied at three games apiece following Philadelphia's 104-99 Game 6 victory Friday night.
The Sixers, playing against elimination, fell behind 10-2 out of the gate Friday and trailed 51-47 at the half. But Philly then scored the first 14 points out of the locker room and held on from there for the win and the cover as a three-point favorite, thanks to a couple of free throws by Tobias Harris with two seconds left.
The Sixers only shot 41 percent from the floor Friday but held Atlanta to 41 percent, too. But Philadelphia won, rebounding 51-47 and turnovers 12-11, and benefited from the Hawks' 13/24 performance from the line.
With Friday's win/cover, Philadelphia is now 7-4 SU, 6-5 ATS this postseason.
With Friday's loss, Atlanta is now 7-4 both SU and ATS this playoff season.
Atlanta is also now 34-15 SU, 28-20 ATS since Coach McMillan took charge back in March.
On the injury front, Atlanta was already playing without F De'Andre Hunter, and now F Bogdan Bogdanovic is listed as questionable for Game 7 with a sore knee. Meanwhile, Philly is playing without G Danny Green, and C Joel Embiid is playing through a slightly torn knee. He's also listed as questionable, but we expect him to go.
Philadelphia played eight games better than the Hawks in the regular-season standings, 49-23 to 41-31, and took the season series from two games to one. So the Sixers are 5-4 both SU and ATS against Atlanta this season.
