Hawks vs. Sixers Game 7 Player Props (June 20, 2021)

It all comes down to Sunday night as the Atlanta Hawks and Philadelphia 76ers take to the Wells Fargo Center court for a seventh and final game in their Eastern Conference Semifinals series. In a series that many pundits expected to go in Philadelphia’s favor in five or six games, Atlanta’s budding superstar point guard Trae Young has silenced his critics and put his team in position to pull off an upset of the Eastern Conference’s top seed. Philadelphia’s trio of Joel Embiid, Ben Simmons, and Tobias Harris will have all eyes focused on their every move as they look to advance the Sixers to their first conference semifinals since 2001.

The Philadelphia 76ers had a rocky-at-best start to Game 6 in Atlanta as they trailed 51-47 at halftime. Sixers point guard Ben Simmons was in foul trouble throughout the contest, paving the way for backup Tyrese Maxey to lead Philadelphia’s offense to the tune of 16 points and 7 rebounds in 29:28 of game action. More importantly for the Sixers, was the fact that they were able to overcome a woeful 18-44 combined shooting performance from MVP finalist Joel Embiid and forward Tobias Harris.

The Hawks had to feel disappointed with their 104-99 loss in Game 6 if for no other reason than it might have been their best overall game of the series, yet they took the loss. Trae Young put up 34 points on 13-30 shooting, including 5-10 from beyond the arc to go with 12 assists and 5 rebounds. Kevin Huerter (17), Danilo Gallinari (16), and Clint Capela (14) each scored in double figures to support Young’s effort in the loss.

Will the favored Sixers punch their ticket to the Eastern Conference Finals or will Trae Young topple another big market franchise in his first postseason?

Seth Curry to Make Over 3.5 Three-Point Field Goals (+117, FOX Bet)

The Sixers’ off-season acquisition of Seth Curry has paid off in an enormous way in this series. Curry has been a steadying force in the Eastern Conference Semifinals, while Ben Simmons has effectively disappeared and Tobias Harris has gone through cold stretches. His season-high 36-point performance in a Game 5 loss was one of the only reasons the Sixers were competitive, while his 24 points were vital to the Sixers’ series-extending Game 6 victory.

This series has been a coming out party of sorts for Seth, whose brother Steph is widely regarded as the best three-point shooter of all-time. Curry connected on 5 three-point field goals in each of the first two games of this series, before hitting two in Game 3 and three in Game 4. Things really ramped up over the past two games, when Curry hit 7 of 12 attempts  in Game 5 and 6 of 9 attempts in Game 6.

So much of the Sixers’ offense is predicated on establishing  an outside safety valve when double teams collapse in the paint on Joel Embiid. Curry has established  himself as that option. Expect him to put up at least 7 three-point attempts hitting at least four in front of the Wells Fargo Center crowd.

Trae Young to Record Over 40.5 Combined Points and Assists (-120, BetMGM)

Despite featuring one of the best team defenses in the NBA, including All-NBA First Teamer Ben Simmons, All-NBA Second Teamer Matisse Thybulle, and the defensive interior force that is Joel Embiid, Philadelphia has been unable to contain Trae Young. Young has scored at least 28 points in four of the six games this series and has dished out double digit assists four times as well.

When it comes to the Over 40.5 combined points and assists market, here’s how he’s fared thus far:

GameTotals
Game 135 PTS, 10 AST (45)
Game 221 PTS, 11 AST (32)
Game 328 PTS, 8 AST (36)
Game 425 PTS, 18 AST (43)
Game 539 PTS, 7 AST (46)
Game 634 PTS, 12 AST (46)

One of the key reasons the over has hit in three of the four occurrences has been Young’s ability to drop 30+ points, however Game 4 also proved that he can hit the over thanks to his playmaking and ability to rack up assists.

Young is averaging 26.3 field goal attempts over his last three games, including a season-high 30 shots in Game 6. For Atlanta to have any chance of pulling off an upset, Young will have to be the man to make it happen.

Joel Embiid to Score 35+ Points (+160, FanDuel Sportsbook)

MVP finalist and Sixers franchise center Joel Embiid admitted after Game 6 that he was disappointed with his performance and that he guaranteed he’d shoot the rock better in Game 7 in Philadelphia. Embiid hasn’t been the same dominant force game in and game out that the basketball world was used to seeing prior to him sustaining a torn meniscus in the first round. However, there’s a gigantic  reason to believe Joel Embiid will score 35+ points in Sunday night’s decisive Game 7.

In three games in Atlanta, Embiid averaged just 22 points per game, while shooting just 20-58 (34.5%) from the field, hitting a total of just 3 three-pointers. The story has been the diametric opposite when he’s played in front of the Philly faithful. In three games at home in this series, Embiid has  put up 38.7 points per game, shooting 37-66 (56%) from the field and connecting on at least 2 three-point attempts in two of those contests.

The biggest potential factor that could see Embiid hit and/or exceed the 35-point threshold is his ability to get to the free throw line. In this series, Embiid has gotten to the line at least 13 times four times, with three of those occurrences coming at the Wells Fargo Center. After getting to the line a series-low four times in Game 6 –as well as publicly calling out the foul call disparity with “Atlanta’s point guard”– expect Embiid to rack up at least 10 points at the line.

Embiid has the opportunity to carry his team to their first Eastern Conference Finals berth in 20 years with a victory. He can do it in front of his home crowd and the man has a flair for the dramatic. Do not bet against Embiid in this one.
