The Hawks are looking for a gimme on the road at Philadelphia to improve their status in the Eastern Conference.
Philly is still not a threat in the East but they have at least been respectable of late.
The Hawks have not been playing great ball of late and more and more it looks like they are not going to pull away the way they did last season. The East overall is better and this team is just not what it was a year ago.
They definitely do not seem anywhere close to the same class as the Cavs, the team that everyone is chasing.
Pretty much nobody is having a season like they did a year ago for the Hawks but the biggest difference to me is Kyle Korver. Not only was he shooting better last season but he seemed to always come up big in big spots.
Since he is not as much of a threat this season there is just a little less room on the floor for the rest of the team. They haven’t fallen off the cliff but things are just not the same for the Hawks.
The Sixers almost made their season by taking down Golden State. Alas it was another loss but they are a respectable 3-4 in their last seven games. They will have also had a nice little break before Atlanta comes to town – 3 days off.
In the near win against the Warriors the Sixers got a rare dispersal of scoring throughout their linep with seven players in double figures, not bad for the lowest scoring team in the league. I am not sure this team really has depth though.
Philly is being led in scoring by rookie Jahlil Okafor, who came off the bench against GS. That gives their lineup a little more length I suppose but it also puts a lot of pressure on the likes of Robert Covington.
He can be productive but probably should not relied upon so much at this level.
The biggest problem for Philadelphia is in the backcourt where no player has emerged as an NBA calibre one or two.
I loved T.J. McConnell in college but if he is getting the most minutes at the point that is saying a lot and Nik Stauskas might be a bust.
