The Philadelphia 76ers and Atlanta Hawks will be attempting to get to the conference finals when the sides meet in Game 7 Sunday. The 76ers last made the conference finals in 2000-01 when they eventually went to the NBA Finals. The Hawks appeared in the conference finals in 2014-15.

Sixers vs. Hawks, 8:00 p.m. ET, TNT

Pick ATS: Hawks +7.5

The last three contests have been close and both teams seem to have a good understanding of each other’s strengths and weaknesses now. The likelihood of another close game is high and the Hawks will keep things close. They might not win the game, but they’re not likely to get blown out.

Player Prop: Ben Simmons over 12.5 points (-113)

Even with Simmons’ struggles scoring, this is a fairly low number for Game 7. Although Tyrese Maxey may eat into his minutes, the Sixers are at their best when Simmons is aggressive. 13 points is not a tough ask for the All-Star guard, even though he’s had a tough time putting the ball in the basket.
