Atlanta held Philadelphia to 13 points in the second quarter, marking a season-low for points allowed in a second quarter.
It’s the first time since 2/8/18 (at Orlando) the Hawks have held an opponent to 13 points or less in a second quarter. – 8:50 PM

HALFTIME: Hawks 52, Sixers 44
Trae Young: 14 pts, 5 ast
Gallo: 13 pts, 3 reb, 3 ast
Hawks had 10 turnovers.
Took a while to get John Collins (6 pts, 4 reb, 1 blk, 1 stl) involved but he made some noise in the final minute of the second quarter, giving the Hawks a boost. – 8:49 PM
Gina Mizell @ginamizell
Halftime: Hawks 52, Sixers 42. Atlanta flipped the game in the second quarter, and are blasting Philly on the boards (25-15). Embiid with 12 points (3-of-10 FG) and 6 boards. Curry with 12 points, but held to one in the second quarter. Trae with 14 and 5. – 8:48 PM
Chris Kirschner @ChrisKirschner
What a quarter for the Hawks. They held the Sixers to just 13 points and lead 52-44 at halftime.
Young: 14, 5 assists, 5/13 FG
Gallinari: 13/3/3 – 8:47 PM
Ky Carlin @Ky_Carlin
That’s such a Furkan Korkmaz shot lol Korkmaz with a tough shot in the corner and Philly is within 52-44 at the half. Hawks have 30 points in the paint. #Sixers8:47 PM
Atlanta Hawks PR @HawksPR
Danilo Gallinari tallied 13 points in tonight’s first half – a season-high for points in either half (4-6 FG, 1-1 3FG, 4-4 FT).
The last time Gallinari scored 13-or-more points in either half was on 5/6/21 at Indiana (1st half). – 8:46 PM
Sarah K. Spencer @sarah_k_spence
Holy cow, what a finish there by John Collins (and pass from Trae Young) – 8:45 PM
Kevin Chouinard @KLChouinard
Maxey blocked Trae’s floater from behind, hit Trae in the head while doing so, got a tech letting the referees know about it. – 8:44 PM
Chris Kirschner @ChrisKirschner
What a pass from Danilo Gallinari to John Collins. Pretty easily the best game of the season for Gallo so far – 8:43 PM
Rich Hoffman @rich_hofmann
Eight points in 11 minutes this quarter against a below-average defense. The Sixers offense, No. 1 in the NBA prior to when Embiid when out with COVID, is in freefall. – 8:42 PM
Ky Carlin @Ky_Carlin
A Danny Green post up. I never thought I’d ever type those words like that. Not sure if that’s the way to go on the offensive end. #Sixers8:36 PM
Chris Kirschner @ChrisKirschner
Sheesh. That was a nasty play by Trae Young. Shake Milton was glued to him, Young gets around the screen and pulls it with little space and drains the 3.
He’s got 14 and the Hawks are up 8 over Philly. Hawks on 26-8 run – 8:35 PM
Gina Mizell @ginamizell
Breaking: Basketball is a game of runs. Hawks on a 22-8 one right now to flip this game. Trae’s got 14 and 4. – 8:35 PM
Kyle Neubeck @KyleNeubeck
I’m all for the Sixers attacking Trae Young’s defense but not sure Danny Green post-ups are how I’d choose to go about it – 8:35 PM
Sarah K. Spencer @sarah_k_spence
Sixers were up 11 toward the end of the first quarter.
… Hawks have outscored them 22-8 so far in the second quarter, taking a 44-39 lead. – 8:32 PM

It is striking how much of a bellwether Gallinari is for the Hawks. Hawks have been pretty bad, but when with Good Gallo present, they’re right in this one. – 8:24 PM
Ky Carlin @Ky_Carlin
Joel Embiid and Tyrese Maxey are a combined 2/10 from the floor and yet Philly is up 31-29. It helps that Seth Curry has 11 on 5/5 shooting. #Sixers8:23 PM

Sixers 31, Hawks 22 at the end of the first. Great start for Philly, led by Curry’s 11 points on 5-of-5 shooting. Hawks had 6 turnovers. Embiid is 1-of-5 from the floor but has been aggressive and drawing fouls (6-of-7 from the line) and has 5 boards. – 8:14 PM

Atlanta Hawks PR @HawksPR
Atlanta held Philadelphia to 13 points in the second quarter, marking a season-low for points allowed in a second quarter.
It’s the first time since 2/8/18 (at Orlando) the Hawks have held an opponent to 13 points or less in a second quarter. – 8:50 PM

HALFTIME: Hawks 52, Sixers 44
Trae Young: 14 pts, 5 ast
Gallo: 13 pts, 3 reb, 3 ast
Hawks had 10 turnovers.
Took a while to get John Collins (6 pts, 4 reb, 1 blk, 1 stl) involved but he made some noise in the final minute of the second quarter, giving the Hawks a boost. – 8:49 PM
Gina Mizell @ginamizell
Halftime: Hawks 52, Sixers 42. Atlanta flipped the game in the second quarter, and are blasting Philly on the boards (25-15). Embiid with 12 points (3-of-10 FG) and 6 boards. Curry with 12 points, but held to one in the second quarter. Trae with 14 and 5. – 8:48 PM
Chris Kirschner @ChrisKirschner
What a quarter for the Hawks. They held the Sixers to just 13 points and lead 52-44 at halftime.
Young: 14, 5 assists, 5/13 FG
Gallinari: 13/3/3 – 8:47 PM
Ky Carlin @Ky_Carlin
That’s such a Furkan Korkmaz shot lol Korkmaz with a tough shot in the corner and Philly is within 52-44 at the half. Hawks have 30 points in the paint. #Sixers8:47 PM
Atlanta Hawks PR @HawksPR
Danilo Gallinari tallied 13 points in tonight’s first half – a season-high for points in either half (4-6 FG, 1-1 3FG, 4-4 FT).
The last time Gallinari scored 13-or-more points in either half was on 5/6/21 at Indiana (1st half). – 8:46 PM
Sarah K. Spencer @sarah_k_spence
Holy cow, what a finish there by John Collins (and pass from Trae Young) – 8:45 PM
Kevin Chouinard @KLChouinard
Maxey blocked Trae’s floater from behind, hit Trae in the head while doing so, got a tech letting the referees know about it. – 8:44 PM
Chris Kirschner @ChrisKirschner
What a pass from Danilo Gallinari to John Collins. Pretty easily the best game of the season for Gallo so far – 8:43 PM
Rich Hoffman @rich_hofmann
Eight points in 11 minutes this quarter against a below-average defense. The Sixers offense, No. 1 in the NBA prior to when Embiid when out with COVID, is in freefall. – 8:42 PM
Ky Carlin @Ky_Carlin
A Danny Green post up. I never thought I’d ever type those words like that. Not sure if that’s the way to go on the offensive end. #Sixers8:36 PM
Chris Kirschner @ChrisKirschner
Sheesh. That was a nasty play by Trae Young. Shake Milton was glued to him, Young gets around the screen and pulls it with little space and drains the 3.
He’s got 14 and the Hawks are up 8 over Philly. Hawks on 26-8 run – 8:35 PM
Gina Mizell @ginamizell
Breaking: Basketball is a game of runs. Hawks on a 22-8 one right now to flip this game. Trae’s got 14 and 4. – 8:35 PM
Kyle Neubeck @KyleNeubeck
I’m all for the Sixers attacking Trae Young’s defense but not sure Danny Green post-ups are how I’d choose to go about it – 8:35 PM
Sarah K. Spencer @sarah_k_spence
Sixers were up 11 toward the end of the first quarter.
… Hawks have outscored them 22-8 so far in the second quarter, taking a 44-39 lead. – 8:32 PM

It is striking how much of a bellwether Gallinari is for the Hawks. Hawks have been pretty bad, but when with Good Gallo present, they’re right in this one. – 8:24 PM
Ky Carlin @Ky_Carlin
Joel Embiid and Tyrese Maxey are a combined 2/10 from the floor and yet Philly is up 31-29. It helps that Seth Curry has 11 on 5/5 shooting. #Sixers8:23 PM

Sixers 31, Hawks 22 at the end of the first. Great start for Philly, led by Curry’s 11 points on 5-of-5 shooting. Hawks had 6 turnovers. Embiid is 1-of-5 from the floor but has been aggressive and drawing fouls (6-of-7 from the line) and has 5 boards. – 8:14 PM

With the exception of Seth Curry, that was a very unwatchable quarter from both sides. – 8:14 PM

Per @EliasSports, Young (23 years, 75 days) is the second-youngest player in NBA history to tally 5,500+ points and 2,000+ assists (LeBron James-22 years, 97 days).
He’s also the second-quickest in terms of games played (227 games) to do so (Oscar Robinson-192 games). – 7:55 PM
