The Sixers were playing their eighth game in 12 days, including games on back-to-back nights, and their road woes continued on Wednesday night with a 107-96 loss to the Hawks.
The defeat stands as the Sixers’ 11th straight loss away from home. The last time Doug Collins’ crew won in an arena not named the Wells Fargo Center was on Jan. 1, when they beat the Lakers at the Staples Center.
Atlanta was playing at Philips Arena for the first time in seven games and snapped a three-game losing streak.
Nick Young missed his fourth straight game with a sprained left ankle; he did not make the three-game road swing.
The Sixers came back from 12 down at the half and were twice within three points in the third quarter, but the final 6:38 belonged to the home team. Atlanta outscored the Sixers 23-5 to close the quarter and led by 21 entering the fourth.
