CBS Sports

on

Article Summary:

It will be the first Game 7 for most of Atlanta’s roster, including Trae Young, whereas Philadelphia’s core trio of Joel Embiid, Ben Simmons and Tobias Harris still have the memory of their crushing Game 7 loss to the Toronto Raptors in 2019 fresh in their memories. Pick: Hawks

Quinn’s take: Home teams win almost 80 percent of Game 7s. If you’re picking the road team, you’d better have a very compelling reason to do so. Pick: 76ers

Botkin’s take: In the fourth quarter of a Game 7, I trust the team with more reliable ways to create shots. Pick: Hawks

Wimbish’s take: I trust Philly at home in what should be a down-to-the-wire game.
