Sixers at Hawks Preview

Hawks look to snap a three-game losing streak as they will take on Jahil Okafor and 76ers. Last game against the Heat the team shot 39.3% from the field as well as 24.2% from the three-point range. The team looked very disoriented offensively and could not rebound from their deficit as they lose to the Miami Heat 100-88. The fans were very disappointed in how the team played against their last opponent but with making a few adjustments, the Hawks are looking to bounce back from this devastating loss. According to Atlanta Hawks beat writer, Chris Vivlamore, had asked Paul Millsap how was the team’s recent practice: “Great practice. Very intense. Very intense.” This could be the turning point for the team to get back on track. Hopefully, this practice session will rejuvenate the Hawks as they looked to face Jahil Okafor (averaging 17.8 points, 8.1 rebounds, and 1.5 blocks per game) and the Philadelphia 76ers. The 76ers (1-25) currently holds the worst record in the league with only one win against the Los Angeles Lakers this season. Of course, they maintain the worst road record by going with 0-15. Furthermore, it has been reported that Nerlens Noel, of the Philadelphia 76ers, is not expected to play tonight due to his eye injury he suffered against the Toronto Raptors on Sunday night. Coverage begins at 8:00 p.m. on Fox Sports Southeast. GO HAWKS!!! TrueToAtlanta

Probable starters:
 
Hawks- Teague, Korver, Bazemore, Millsap, and Horford
 
Sixers- Wroten, Canaan, Covington, Grant, and Okafor
