The NBA Playoffs continue to delight us with bright games. The next game day starts with an interesting confrontation, "Philadelphia" will go to visit "Atlanta". The fourth meeting of these teams will take place on June 15 at 02:30 Moscow time. Our portal has prepared a forecast for this meeting for you.
Atlanta has a great blend of youth and experience in the team, which solved the problems with building the game this season. After a good start, Atlanta sank in the middle of the season and could not get into the playoff zone, but a bright finish allowed the team to be in the coveted six without any problems. Right now, the Hawks ' game is bright and fast, built on sharp counterattacks, which opponents are often not ready for. Atlanta managed to win the series against New York, giving the opponent only one game. However, after that, it was hard for them to fight with "Philadelphia", and the victory in the first meeting became more of an accident, which was proved by the subsequent matches.
The Sixers had a good season, finishing first in the East. The new coach of the "Philadelphia", Rivers, has something to prove, because he is easily motivated by himself and transmits energy to his young players. The Sixers have everything they need to surpass last year's record and reach at least the conference finals. In the first round, the team passed Washington without any problems, losing only once on the road. True, the team failed defensively with the brisk "Atlanta" and lost in the first game at home, but after that it worked on mistakes and already defeated soppernik twice.
Injuries and disqualifications:
Atlanta - Goodwin (illness), Reddish (achilles injury), Hunter (knee injury).
Philadelphia - Green (calf injury).
Statistics and figures
- The last match between these teams ended with a victory of "Philadelphia" 111: 127.
- Philadelphia has a good two-win streak in a row.
- In their last five games, Atlanta has only lost twice.
The clear favorite in this confrontation looks like "Philadelphia", which has a more powerful and well-played squad, and is now in good shape, despite the defeat in the first match. "Atlanta" also scored a good move, but is inferior in skill. I think the Sixers players will be able to push a less experienced opponent again.
