The Philadelphia 76ers collapsed in the fourth quarter of Game 5 against the Atlanta Hawks blowing a massive lead to go down in the series 3-2. The Hawks were led by Trae Young (39 points, 7 assists), while Joel Embiid (37 points, 13 rebounds) did everything he could despite everyone struggling around him.

Philadelphia heads into State Farm Arena tonight with the season on the line and the NBA Playoff odds favor the 76ers (-3) to win a force Game 7, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.

Here are three player prop bets for Game 6 between the 76ers and Hawks, courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook.

1. Trae Young Over 2.5 3-pointers (-128)

The Hawks are going to be determined to win this series at home and take care of business. If that is the case, look for Young to step up and control the offense once again. He has hit this mark in six of his 10 playoff games this postseason and is shooting 8.8 threes per game since Game 2 of the first round. Young has also hit three 3-pointers in each of the Hawks' two home games in this series. Rely on Young to get the job done here.

2. Joel Embiid Over 12.5 Rebounds (-132)

The 76ers will need another big game from MVP runner-up Joel Embiid if they want any chance of forcing a Game 7. His rebound prop is one to focus on here as he has been able to grab at least 13 rebounds in three of the five games this series. Embiid is playing his best basketball of the season right now and should be motivated to carry the team. He played a playoff-high 39 minutes in Game 5 and could smash this prop with that kind of usage tonight.

3. John Collins to Score 15+ Points (-150)

John Collin's performance in Game 5 (19 points, 11 rebounds) played a key role in the Hawks major comeback in the second half. He was finding gaps in the defense and scoring at will down near the rim. Collins' ability to grab offensive rebounds is allowing him to rack up easy layups and putbacks. Collins has scored at least 15 points in three of the five games this series and is averaging 18.3 points per game at home during the postseason. He should get enough opportunities to hit this mark tonight.
