76ers vs Hawks live score, updates, highlights from Game 7 of the NBA playoff series



Doc Rivers hasn’t won a Game 7 in his last three chances, but he will look to change his recent misfortune when the 76ers take on the Hawks on Sunday night.

Philadelphia avoided elimination in a 104-99 Game 6 win over Atlanta and will now return to the Wells Fargo Center in hopes of taking out Trae Young’s Hawks. Seth Curry and Tyrese Maxey were excellent in Philadelphia’s last game, but the team will continue to rely heavily on Joel Embiid, Ben Simmons and Tobias Harris as they look to advance Rivers’ first year as the 76ers coach.

Meanwhile, the Hawks have little to lose in this contest. Few expected Atlanta to make some sort of playoff run, much less lead the Sixers to Game 7.

However, interim coach Nate McMillan organized an epic turnaround after taking over the team mid-season. He was 27-11 in his 38 regular-season games as a coach and led the 5-seeded Hawks to a 4-1 series win over the Knicks.

McMillan is strongly preferred to return as Atlanta’s coach next season, but a Game 7 win would bolster his chances of staying in charge of the Hawks. Or it could become a valuable bargaining chip for him as he negotiates his future salary.
