The Atlanta Hawks face the Philadelphia 76ers in Game 6 with a chance to cause a big upset in the ATL.
The Hawks played a spoiler on the road in Game 5, overcoming a double-digit deficit for the second straight game. The return of Game 5 was one of the most dramatic in recent playoff history, as the Hawks once faced a 25-point deficit.
However, the sixers I’d rather forget about the last two games and look forward. Game 6 is almost a must for the Hawks. It’s hard to see them come out on top in a Game 7 on the road, regardless of their impressive accomplishments so far in the postseason.
The Sixers, however, must overcome their own mental hurdles. Ben Simmons has been on the verge of nonexistence in recent games. Joel Embiid disappeared in the fourth quarter of Game 5. Doc Rivers made some shoddy adjustments that failed at every level. So where does Philadelphia go from here?
State Farm Arena, of course. Hawks fans will be waiting, hoping to put the nail in the coffin of what was once such a promising season for the 1-seeded No. Sixers.
