The Atlanta Hawks are one of the youngest teams in the NBA, but that doesn’t mean they are shy on talent as they have a starting 5 that can be one of the top in the league in a few years. The Hawks have given the keys to the offense to Trae Young and he has been amazing to start the season as the 2nd-year pro is averaging 38.5 PPG and 9 APG which is problematic for the Sixers. Atlanta matches up well in this game as John Collins will handle Embiid and Horford in the paint, and the young tandem of Hunter and Reddish will be a problem on the wing.
