In the first half of the first game of this series, Atlanta looked dominant. The 76ers couldn’t a way to exploit Trae Young on the defensive side of the ball, they certainly didn’t have an answer to slowing down the Atlanta point guard and the Hawks went into the break up 74-54 and looked prime to pull off an upset against the No. 1 seed in the East.
The script has flipped in the two-and-a-half games since.
Philly outscored Atlanta by 16 points in the second half. They beat Atlanta by 16 points in Game 2. They won by 16 points again in Game 3. In the last 10 quarters, the Hawks have been outscored by 48 points. Since going for 25 points and seven assists in the first half of Game 1, Young is 18-for-43 from the floor and just 4-for-17 from three.
But perhaps the most important thing to note here is that the 76ers have seemingly figured out how to exploit Young’s defensive deficiencies. Whenever he ends up on Ben Simmons, Simmons is putting his head down and getting into the lane, either to score or to find a teammate. He finished with 18 point and seven assists in Game 3, and when combined with Tobias Harris waking up, Furkan Korkmiz filling in aptly for the injured Danny Green and the continued dominance of Joel Embiid at the five, Philly’s taken total control of this series.
I don’t think that changes tonight.
The one x-factor is Atlanta’s three-point shooting. They shot just 23 threes on Friday night, the lowest total they’ve attempted in the Playoffs, and made just six. This is a team who is built around Trae Young trey-bombs and his ability to exploit the space his shooters create. They’re capable of catching fire at any point.
But I’m not worried. Philly’s one of the best defensive teams in the NBA. I think they take total control of this series tonight and easily cover the (-3.5).
