Article Summary:

After winning a critical Game 6 on the road on Friday night, the Philadelphia 76ers set themselves up for an opportunity to close the second-round series against the Atlanta Hawks on Sunday night during Game 7.

Despite losing two out of three games at home during the series, the Sixers were confident that the environment in South Philly could help them snag the must-win Game 7 on Sunday night. As Hawks starters Kevin Huerter and John Collins combined for 22 points in the first half, Atlanta went into halftime with a 48-46 lead.

Unlike their Game 6 performance, the Sixers failed to come out of halftime, putting their foot on the gas. As Philly’s offense continued to play without any rhythm, the Hawks once again outscored the Sixers heading into the final period as they led by five points.

As the Sixers once again failed to get past the second round, the Hawks will advance to the Eastern Conference Finals for the first time since the 2014-2015 season, where they will face the Milwaukee Bucks in a seven-game series.
