Hawks vs. 76ers Game 7 Prediction
The 76ers forced a Game 7 in their East Semifinals series with the Hawks, which is set for 8:00 p.m. ET on Sunday. Are seven points too much to lay with the Sixers or will Philadelphia cover the number?

8:00 p.m. ET, Sunday, June 20, 2021
Venue: Wells Fargo Center, Philadelphia, PA
Atlanta Hawks DFS Notes
Trae Young (shoulder soreness) is probable for Game 7 against the 76ers on Sunday. There’s no question that he plays in the biggest game of his life tomorrow, so this is precautionary from coach Nate McMillan and the Hawks.
Philadelphia 76ers DFS Notes
Joel Embiid expressed frustration with the officiating in the Philadelphia-Atlanta series after the Sixers Game 6 victory. The Sixers escape Game 6 with a victory, but Embiid still felt the need to vent after the contest. “I just felt like it wasn’t called both ways, especially because of the minimal contact that they get on the point guard, and when it comes to us, we don’t get the same thing,” Embiid said. “So I just want it called both ways. If you’re going to call something like nothing on their point guard, it should be the same way and call the same thing [for] me when I get — if I get — touched.”
