The Dwight Howard era has commenced with resounding success in Atlanta.
Currently soaring, the Hawks will seek to parlay this momentum against the brash and exciting Philadelphia 76ers when the Eastern Conference rivals meet for a weekend matinee.
Last season, Atlanta swept the hapless Sixers 3-0 during the regular campaign. In these lopsided affairs the Hawks decimated Philadelphia by a staggering average of 29 points per contest.
However, the Philadelphia 76ers iteration Atlanta will face Saturday bears little resemblance to the 10-72 doormat grouping from a year ago.
Opposite Washington, the Hawks stormed out of the gate, blitzing their Southeast Divsion rival 114-99. Newly acquired Center Dwight Howard engulfed 19 rebounds, while Paul Millsap added 28 points.
Although, streak-shooting reserve Tim Hardaway Jr. caught fire in timely fashion to blow the game open in Atlanta’s favor.
In the final frame, Hardaway Jr. scored twelve of his 21 points to spark a decisive 33-19 fourth-quarter run.
A resolute Atlanta defense limited All Star point guard John Wall to just 5-of-13 shooting. Wall also committed five turnovers. A focused Hawks bench outscored Washington’s backups 49-38.
Tasked with a springy and rugged Philadelphia front line, the tandem of Howard and Millsap must utilize their experience and guile to ensure victory.
In a season-opening thriller, Philadelphia controlled the majority of play before having a near certain triumph snatched in the waning moments by visiting Oklahoma City.
Rookie-sensation Joel Embiid made his long-awaited debut a successful one by notching 20 points, seven rebounds and two blocks.
While Embiid showcased flashes of tantalizing promise; collectively Philadelphia has the look of a team yearning to take the next step.
This goal is well within reach as backcourt additions Sergio Rodriguez and Gerald Henderson provide stabilizing veteran presences.
Against Atlanta, the Sixers would do well to improve upon their perimeter accuracy.
Additionally, to come away victorious, Philly will need to outhustle the Hawks for 48 minutes.
