Solid performance by Europeans in Game 3 between Atlanta and Philadelphia with the latter taking the win

The Atlanta Hawks started off the series with a win but it was all the Philadelphia 76ers since. The Sixers got 16-point wins in the following two games and seem to be on the right track to win this matchup.

Ben Simmons’ contribution on both sides of the floor was crucial for Philadelphia, especially so in Game 3 which they won 127-111. Simmons was chasing around Trae Young the whole he spent on the floor and, after getting ‘motivated’ by coach Doc River and Joel Embiid to be more aggressive on offense, scored 18 points as well.

Young still finished with game-high 28 points on more than 50% from the field as well the three-point range, though.

Embiid had 27 points, nine rebounds, eight assists while Tobias Harris added 22 points for the Sixers. Furkan Korkmaz was also quite solid with 14 points on 3-6 from deep.

Euros did their thing for Atlanta as well. Bogdan Bogdanovic scored 19 followed by Danilo Gallinari’s 17 points while Clint Capela had eight points and 16 rebounds.
