Article Summary:

Oh yes, there will be a Game 6 in the Eastern Conference semifinals, with the upstart Hawks – not top-seeded Joel Embiid and the Sixers – playing for a spot in the next round.

Consider:

– Embiid scored 39 points and Seth Curry had 36 and they were the only two Sixers to score a field goal in the second half. ”

Lou Williams, Danilo Gallinari and Young opened the fourth on a huge run against the Sixers’ second unit and kept attacking once 76ers coach Doc Rivers was forced to put the starters in and save the lead.

Gallinari hit a 3 that made it 87-76 and Embiid sprang from his cool down seat behind the basket and ran to the scorer’s table to check back in the game.

The Hawks led by 26 points in a Game 1 victory and won Game 4 at home Monday.
