Sixers vs Hawks NBA Live: The Philadelphia Sixers and Atlanta Hawks will meet for the first game in the Eastern Conference Semi Finals. The Sixers beat the Wizards in 5 games while the Hawks also did the same with the New York Knicks.

76ers vs Hawks ECSF Game 1: Joel Embiid has been central to the team’s success for many years but his injury has certainly hit their prospects, his status is unclear for Game 1. The Sixers do have Tobias and Ben who can both contribute in many ways, meanwhile, the Hawks with their full-strength squad can become a tough matchup, especially considering how Trae Young has fared this season. Who will step up for the Sixers if Joel doesn’t play or even if he plays, how will they defend Trae Young, and are the Hawks a better team than Philly right now? These are the questions that will be answered during the Series.

*Stats from postseason*
Projected Fantasy Points: 52
Young has been too hot to handle all season long and the Knicks got a taste of his talents first up. Trae can not only score in a myriad of ways but he has an unbelievable court vision and the game comes to him naturally. Will Simmons pin-up Young or Green will have to handle him? It can be a matchup nightmare no matter who guards him. He is a terrific pick as the Super-Player in Dream11 NBA play.
Embiid will battle it out against Capela if he is ready to go for the game. The matchup with Clint can define the series since Joel was never tested at a high clip versus the Wizards and may need to make some adjustments against a tough defender. Embiid’s health concerns can hamper the Sixers so they would need him to be ready for Game 1.
Tobias was pouring in buckets after buckets against the Wizards and was a determinate player during the series. Harris plays a vital role at the Forward spot and his versatile game is a pleasure for a coach and the team. His matchup with Collins can turn out to be a treat.
Clint will have a tough assignment in Embiid if Joel is available for the game. His scoring was down against the Knicks but his impact on defense and rebounding makes up for that most of the time. Capela will be the key to the Hawks’ success in the series against a tough Philly team.
Ben Simmons: PPG: 14.8 RPG: 10.2 APG: 9.2 SPG: 1.2
TPG: 2.2 PFP: 43
Simmons is a masterful Guard for the Sixers who are their primary playmaker, lockdown perimeter defender, and can also chip in with a bulk of rebounds. He will be key in halting the Hawks’ campaign this season and if Embiid is out for the game then he may have to score more.
Bogdan Bogdanovic: PPG: 14.4 RPG: 6.6 APG: 3.8 SPG: 1.4 PFP: 35
The vastly talented Bogdan helps the Hawks’ offense to stretch the floor and be effective on a constant level. He was stellar in the series against the Knicks and the Hawks will need more of his offensive talent in the series.
John Collins: PPG: 12.2 RPG: 6.0 PFP: 23
Collins is a highly athletic player who can provide above-average scoring and rebounding. John will have to play at his best against a tough scoring team.
Seth Curry: PPG: 15.8 PFP: 19
Danilo Gallinari: PPG: 9.4 RPG: 3.2 PFP: 17
PG: B Simmons(PP), T Young(SP)
SG: D Green, K Huerter
SF: M Thybuille
PF: T Harris, D Gallinari
