Philadelphia 76ers vs Atlanta Hawks Betting Tips
The first match of this series fully justified the expectations of the intensity of this series. The Atlanta Hawks upset the 76ers, won 128-124, and took the lead 1-0.
As I predicted before game number 1, the Atlanta Hawks made the most of the potential of this team, and the top shooters in this team just played a great game. 20 shots scored for 3 points is what ruled the 76ers.
Phila will now have a big imperative to win because a 0-2 deficit would create a big, perhaps unsolvable problem for this team. The 76ers played best at the end of the game when they managed to come close to just 2 points behind with an aggressive defence, but Bogdanovic and Young solved the match from the free-throw line in a very calm way.
In-game number 2, I expect the 76ers not to allow the Hawks to break away at the start of the match and impose a much stronger defence in a timely manner—76ers to win.
There are no injured players on the home team now, and everyone is ready for game number 2. Embiid had 39 points and 9 rebounds in the first game, Curry scored 21, Harris 17. Once again, a much more efficient performance by Ben Simmons will be needed. He hinted at the end of the game that he might have solutions in attack for the Hawks.

Trae Young once again put on an outstanding performance against the 76ers. Not only did he score 35 points and 10 assists, but with some long-range 3 points shots, he raised the self-confidence of his team. Bogdanovic, who scored some clutch points and free throws at the end of the match, must be acknowledged. All in all, there were a lot of good players at the Hawks, and they will hardly be able to play two games like this in a row.
