The Philadelphia 76ers finally won a game and look to make more history by winning back-to-back games. The lack of rest will hurt them here and the Hawks are clearly the better team. However, I'm not laying this type of chalk here, as the Hawks are prone to playing down to their comp. I'll take the points based on the value but this is a game you should probably avoid.
