This was a fun one to watch. The Sixers completely dismantled the Hawks, embarrassing Atlanta in their own building 127-111 to take a 2-1 series lead. After a wake up call in game 1, it appears the Sixers have….well…they’ve woken up.

There weren’t a lot of negatives. The Sixers lost Danny Green to a calf injury. After the game he was seen in a walking boot. While Green hasn’t played well this series, he is still a key part of the Sixers success. Joel Embiid also had some hard falls but luckily the Sixers and Hawks wont play again until Monday.

You knew it was going to be a good night when Furkan Korkmaz came in off the bench and proceeded to do a very impressive Shake Milton impression. Korkmaz dropped 14 points and will now head to Magic City to celebrate.

What is truly adorable is the fact that some in the national media actually thought Atlanta would win this game. And I suppose it is understandable. After all, the Hawks became the first team in NBA HISTORY to go into MSG and beat the vaunted Knicks. I wonder if guys like Shaq have rethought their previous stance
