Buoyed by one of the most dominating performers in the NBA this season, Atlanta had an easy time of it.

Young continued the onslaught and closed out the first half with 29 points.

The Hawk ended a career night with 39 points and 18 assists.

John Collins also has a double double for the game, putting up 17 points and 20 boards.

Vince Carter and Damon James complimented with 14 points each.

Kevin Huerter and Cam Reddish helped the Atlanta cause with each adding a dozen points.

Ben Simmons accounted for 31 Sixer points along with 21 from Tobias Harris.

For the Sixers to have playoff success they must improve on the road as their record as a visitor drops to a disheartening, 9-16.

Conversely, Philly is 22-2 at the Wells Fargo Center.
