Sixers Look to Stay Hot As They Square Off Tonight Against the Atlanta Hawks
With emotions flying high in Philadelphia right now, the Sixers will look to keep spirits high with a win tonight against the Hawks. The Sixers faced off against the same banged up Atlanta team on Wednesday, and absolutely plummeted them by a final score of 127-183. They’ll set out to do the same thing tonight.
The Sixers will be as healthy as can be tonight, with the only potential of injuries being a rest game. The Hawks were without Young, Huerter, Bogdanovic, Hunter, Reddish, and Snell on Wednesday, and no news has came out that any of those guys will be available tonight as well. The Sixers need to go out and take care of business, and get their starters some more valuable rest late in the game.
The team looks to improve to 42-21 on the season, and bring the Eastern Conference to within a one game stand. While the Sixers win is important, the Nets loss is just as, if not even more important tonight, as they take on a 3-7 in their last 10 Trail Blazers lineup. 7:00 start time tonight for the Sixers, who are set to go out and put the Atlanta Hawks away early.
