Hawks vs. 76ers Betting Preview: NBA Picks & Odds
Atlanta Hawks (41-31, 16-20 Away) vs. Philadelphia 76ers (49-23, 29-7 Home)
Date: Wednesday, June 16, 2021
Time: 7:30 p.m. EST
Venue: Wells Fargo Center – Philadelphia, Pa.
Young scored 6 straight points for the Hawks in the final 77 seconds for them to win the game by 3 points. Still, he struggled with his shot overall, connecting on just 3 of 11 from 3-point range. Young also missed two of his eight free throw attempts. This shooting performance is overshadowed by his 25 points and 18 assists. Still, he needs to be sharper for the Hawks to win on the road. As a team, the Hawks shot just 36.6% overall and 30% from downtown. They are lucky to have turned the ball over just four times and to grab 12 offensive rebounds.
On the flip side, the 76ers need to limit the offensive rebounds while also forcing turnovers. They shot much better for the Hawks, finishing the game 43.5% overall and 40.7% from 3-point range. However, Atlanta took 16 more shots from the floor than Philadelphia. Along with giving more of an effort in those areas, Embiid needs to dig deep and fight through this knee injury. He finished with a 17-point, 21-rebound double-double, but the 76ers clearly missed his overall offensive production that he brought in the first three games. How long can Embiid hold up?

Hawks vs. 76ers Prediction
Energized by his home crowd and whatever the team injects his knee with, Embiid should come to play in Game 5. The 76ers are too good at home to drop this game, and it very well could be a convincing win. I will take the Sixers to cover this spread as well, assuming the shooting woes continue for Atlanta, but the offensive rebounds do not.
Prediction: 76ers -6.5 (BetMGM)
