The second round of the 2021 NBA playoffs is set to begin on Saturday, June 5th. Here we’ll be going over the schedule for the second-round series between the Atlanta Hawks and Philadelphia 76ers.
The Atlanta Hawks dispatched the New York Knicks in the first round in five games. Trae Young has a first-round series win under his belt in his first taste of the NBA Playoffs. The Hawks enter a tougher matchup against the No. 1 seed but have plenty of depth and momentum on their side.
The Sixers eliminated the Washington Wizards in five games but not without a bit of bad news. C Joel Embiid was injured in Game 4 and is considered day-to-day with a small tear in his meniscus. Embiid’s status will be big for this series and the longer he remains out, the more optimism it will give ATL.
