Atlanta Hawks vs Philadelphia 76ers: Prediction and Betting Tips

00:30, Jun 19 2021
Atlanta Hawks vs Philadelphia 76ers prediction for Saturday’s game six of the NBA playoffs clash at State Farm Arena in Atlanta. Atlanta Hawks took charge of the series by winning the fifth game and they host the Philadelphia 76ers with the chance to end the series with a win in the sixth game. Read on for our free prediction and betting tips.

Atlanta Hawks just one game away to seal the series

It can be considered as one of the best comebacks of the playoffs this season by the Atlanta Hawks. The Hawks were trailing by 26 points in the third quarter but an incredible 19-4 run and a 40-19 fourth quarter led by Trae Young, allowed the Hawks to win a game that seemed to be out of reach.

In the fourth quarter, the Hawks scored an amazing 93% of their shots from the two-point distance and had a 72% field goal percentage. Despite his shoulder injury, Trae Young has the most influential player of his team in this series and the playoffs with almost 30 points per game and 10.8 assists.

Hawks key points

  • Atlanta are averaging 107.3 points per game in the playoffs
  • The Hawks are shooting 35.3% from the arc of three points
  • 44.7% field goals is the percentage of Atlanta in the playoffs

Philadelphia 76ers have their backs to the wall

It was a tale of two different halves for the Philadelphia 76ers in game five as the home side were off to a flying start in the first half leading by 22 points after two quarters and extending that lead to 26 in the start of the fourth. To their fans’ astonishment, the 76ers blew that lead in the fourth quarter and now travel to Atlanta in search of a win to force a seventh game in the series.

Apart from Joel Embiid and Seth Curry, the entire 76ers team managed to score just six points in the entire second half. They made 0 of four shots from the arc in the fourth quarter and made 30% of their field goals. It was a night to forget for the 76ers. They have no other choice than to regroup and play for the win and force a seventh game.

76ers Key Points

  • The 76ers are averaging 119.5 points per game in the playoffs
  • Philadelphia are making 51% of their field goals in the playoffs
  • Joel Embiid is averaging 32 points per game in the playoffs

Atlanta Hawks vs Philadelphia 76ers Prediction 

It’s a crazy series, to say the least. Both teams’ star players are playing with injuries and one only can wonder how much more can Trae Young and Joel Embiid play with their injuries.

The hawks will be better mentally going into this game after their win in game five. The 76ers must give help to Embiid. Simmons Harris and co must step up their game and not repeat the kind of performance they had in the fourth quarter of game five.

We have seen some very unpredictable results in this series and we think the safest bet here to back the total points of the game. We believe it will be a very defensive and tense game which will limit the scoring to under both teams’ averages.
