Kellan Olson @KellanOlson
Chris Paul responded to a question on if Steph Curry had an impact on the 3-point revolution in the NBA and was puzzled by it at first before a “Hell yeah!”
Paul saw Trae Young in AAU shooting as he came across half court and said that’s all Steph. – 1:15 AM

Joel Embiid: “There wasn’t anybody that was not likable in the past but it makes it easier when you have guys like that that care about winning.

Any time you can get a win undermanned, missing 2 or 3 players, it’s great confidence for our guys.” pic.twitter.com/LmuraqwMvc11:45 PM

John Collins on the Hawks’ 9-point 4th quarter: “First off, it’s turnovers, and second off, it’s not being able to put the ball in the basket, which I don’t say often about this team… I didn’t feel like all our shot attempts were the best we could get sometimes. That adds up.” – 11:19 PM

Nice 98-96 win for the Sixers in Atlanta, as the game looked to be slipping away from them there in the 3rd. Outscored the Hawks 20-9 in the final frame to steal the win. All 5 starters finished in double figures, led by 28 from Embiid. Sixers improve to 12-11 on the season. – 10:13 PM

Hawks 87, Sixers 78 at the end of the third. Philly had cut the lead to 67-66 on that Maxey and-1, but ATL outscored 20-12 the rest of the way. Embiid with 22 and 10. He, Niang and Green all have four fouls. – 9:38 PM
Kevin Chouinard @KLChouinard
I don’t think the Hawks have gotten as much offensively out of the JC-at-center lineups as they’ve wanted this season.
That last couple of minutes was something on the order of what the ideal version looks like.
Trae was conducting a master class. – 9:38 PM
Atlanta Hawks PR @HawksPR
With his 10th assist tonight (21 PTS, 10 AST), Trae Young has recorded his 70th career 20+ point, 10+ assist outing of his career, tying Russell Westbrook for most 20p/10a games since 2018-19.
Young has notched seven 20p/10a games this season, the second-most in the league. – 9:38 PM

Hawks will take an 87-78 lead vs. the Sixers into the fourth quarter.

Kevin Chouinard @KLChouinard
Despite the loss, that was a reasonable challenge. Trae already has a tech, he wanted the challenge and Maxey was going left when that is supposed to be a point of emphasis. Trae hit him, but it was close. – 9:35 PM

Stop me if you’ve heard this one before, but so far tonight the Sixers are a +4 in Embiid’s 24 minutes of play, -12 in the 8 minutes that he’s been on the bench. – 9:23 PM

Halftime: Hawks 52, Sixers 42. Atlanta flipped the game in the second quarter, and are blasting Philly on the boards (25-15). Embiid with 12 points (3-of-10 FG) and 6 boards. Curry with 12 points, but held to one in the second quarter. Trae with 14 and 5. – 8:48 PM

Danilo Gallinari tallied 13 points in tonight’s first half – a season-high for points in either half (4-6 FG, 1-1 3FG, 4-4 FT).

What a pass from Danilo Gallinari to John Collins. Pretty easily the best game of the season for Gallo so far – 8:43 PM

Eight points in 11 minutes this quarter against a below-average defense. The Sixers offense, No. 1 in the NBA prior to when Embiid when out with COVID, is in freefall. – 8:42 PM

A Danny Green post up. I never thought I’d ever type those words like that. Not sure if that’s the way to go on the offensive end. #Sixers8:36 PM
Chris Kirschner @ChrisKirschner
Sheesh. That was a nasty play by Trae Young. Shake Milton was glued to him, Young gets around the screen and pulls it with little space and drains the 3.
He’s got 14 and the Hawks are up 8 over Philly. Hawks on 26-8 run – 8:35 PM
