The Sixers are starring down the barrel of a round two boil over at the hands of playoffs dark horse Atlanta.
For the second time this series the 76ers blew a massive first half advantage, once again chocking down the final stretch.
The key to the Philly’s success lies in their ability to shutdown Trae Young, a task which has proven harder than first expected.
Doc has been hesitant to play Embiid on full minutes this series, but with their season on the line I can’t see the big man spending much time on the pine here.
I can see this match turning into a Young vs Embiid shootout and I’ll be backing the larger than life centre to stuff the stat sheet!
