– Hawks PR June 21, 2021

It was a close game wire-to-wire, with neither team leading by more than seven points at any point during the game. The Sixers have been able to limit the Hawks from the three-point line since Game 1 in this series, yet the Hawks were able to make enough plays – and get enough stops – to take home the series win despite shooting just 7-of-27 from three in Game 7.

The Sixers came into the series as one of the most highly touted defenses in the NBA, so them being able to impact Atlanta’s offense was far from surprising. “They’ve learned how to win games, they’re showing composure out there.”

The Hawks had nine steals in this game and forced 17 Philadelphia turnovers overall, holding Philadelphia below 100 points for the first time in the series.
