Through 1 Quarter

A victory for the Philadelphia 76ers would push them over .500, and after one quarter they have put themselves in a good position to make this happen. They have emerged as the frontrunner and are ahead of the Atlanta Hawks 31-24.

Philadelphia has been relying on shooting guard Seth Curry, who has 11 points, and center Joel Embiid, who has eight points along with five boards and one block. Atlanta hasn’t had any offensive standouts so far with all players held to six points or fewer.

Who’s Playing

Philadelphia @ Atlanta

Current Records: Philadelphia 11-11; Atlanta 12-10

What to Know

The Philadelphia 76ers’ road trip will continue as they head to State Farm Arena at 7:30 p.m. ET Friday to face off against the Atlanta Hawks. The neutral point spread forecasts a close one for these two.

Philadelphia was just a bucket short of a victory on Wednesday and fell 88-87 to the Boston Celtics. Point guard Tyrese Maxey had a pretty forgettable game, finishing with only six points on 3-for-13 shooting in his 32 minutes on the court.

Speaking of close games: Atlanta sure made it a nail-biter, but they managed to escape with a 114-111 win over the Indiana Pacers on Wednesday. The Hawks’ point guard Trae Young did his thing and almost dropped a triple-double on 33 points, ten dimes, and eight rebounds. The matchup made it Young’s fifth in a row with at least 30 points.

Everything went the 76ers’ way against Atlanta in the teams’ previous meeting in October as they made off with a 122-94 win. The rematch might be a little tougher for Philadelphia since the squad won’t have home-court advantage. We’ll see if the change in venue makes a difference.
