76ers vs Hawks Game Info
2022-23 NBA Regular Season Game
Philadelphia 76ers (5-6, 3-2 Away) vs. Atlanta Hawks (7-4, 4-2 Home)
Date: Thursday, Nov. 10, 2022
Time: 7:30 p.m. ET
Venue: State Farm Arena — Atlanta, GA
Coverage: NBA TV
The 2022-23 NBA season has four games planned for Thursday, Nov. 10, including an Eastern Conference showdown between the Philadelphia 76ers and Atlanta Hawks. The 76ers enter this matchup having won three straight road games, which includes defeating the Phoenix Suns, 100-88, on Monday.
The 76ers must deal with a hungry Hawks squad that's coming off a 125-119 loss to the Utah Jazz on Wednesday. Despite having one of the best three-point defenses in the NBA, Atlanta couldn't stop the Jazz from going 17-of-39 (43.6%) from behind the arc, proving that a better defensive effort is needed tonight.

76ers vs Hawks Prediction & Pick
The 76ers may have won their last three road games, but they'll be without a player who played a crucial role in those victories: James Harden. The three-time scoring champion averaged 16.3 points and 10.7 assists in those wins, however, he's out of the lineup for the next month due to a foot strain.
Though Tyrese Maxey has been great for the 76ers this season (23.6 PPG on 57.8% true shooting), the duo of Dejounte Murray and Trae Young is too much for Philly's Harden-less backcourt to handle. That's especially true with Harden being replaced by De'Anthony Melton, who's averaged just 7.7 PPG in 59 career games as a starter.
Sure, the 76ers still have Joel Embiid, but he's dealt with injuries and illnesses this season. Even though he did drop 33 points in the win over the Suns, he only shot 38.1% from the floor. That doesn't exactly inspire confidence ahead of a matchup with the Hawks — a team that's held him to 34-of-83 shooting (41%) in the last five 76ers-Hawks meetings (incl. playoffs).
At the end of the day, the 76ers are too banged up to win on the road, especially without Harden. The Hawks' backcourt will be too much for the road team to handle, leading to an Atlanta victory in front of the home crowd.
Final Score Prediction: Hawks: 109 | 76ers: 106

76ers vs Hawks Best Bet
Even though this game has the second-highest projected total of Thursday's schedule, don't count on these teams coming close to it. The total has hit the under in each of the last seven 76ers-Hawks matchups, combining for an average total of 203.4 points. Furthermore, both sides failed to even reach 100 points in the last two meetings.
With the 76ers missing Harden and the two sides being among the best at limiting turnovers, I don't see a lot of points in this one. Back the total going under 222.5 points.
Bet: Under 222.5 Points (-110)
