I do not like this matchup at all. If Biid is healthy enough, I see it going 6 for Philly. If he isn't healthy, it's a toss up. Atlanta got some shooters. They got a shot creator in Trae who can get to the free throw line and they got a rim protector and great rebounder in Capela.

Hopefully Doc can exploit the Hawks youth and can harass Trae enough into turnovers. Hopefully Biid can keep Capela in foul trouble. Not sure what to do with Collins. Who guards him Tobias or Ben? Need Ben on Trae by the 4th.

Torn meniscus slight or otherwise means he's probably not playing at least this round. Atl may very well beat Philly.

Actually if Doc puts Simmons on Trae and nullifies him and Dwight can defend capela then Sixers can win in as little as 5

I forgot they have green and thybulle for guys like bogdan and Hunter/Huerterp

Simmons a beast, but hes not guarding trae all game. Itll be too much.

In crunch time though? Ben gon be on him.

Its not gonna be as easy to shut trae down as yall think. Not cause Ben cant do it, but cause the refs really protect trae, so hes gonna get a ton of calls.

Sixers fans gonna see how trae has his own rules. You cant be as physical with him as you czn with others. Its gonna be hard to adjust going from guarding bogdan physical, to switching on trae, and not being allowed to touch his jersey.
