NBA Playoffs 2021: How to watch Monday's set of Game 4s

While the Phoenix Suns became the first team to punch their ticket to the Western Conference Finals, the second round of the NBA Playoffs continues on Monday with a pair of Game 4s.

In each game, the home team trails 2-1 with an opportunity to even the series up at two games apiece. The night begins in Atlanta, where the Hawks look to get back on track after dropping the last two games to the Philadelphia 76ers. From there, the LA Clippers look to take care of home once again to put more pressure on the Utah Jazz before the series shifts back to Salt Lake City.

Ahead of a busy night of action, we've got you covered with how to watch each game and a few things to keep an eye out for.

All times Eastern.

No. 1 Philadelphia 76ers vs. No. 5 Atlanta Hawks (1), Game 4 - 7:30 p.m., TSN 4/5

76ers lead 2-1

After dropping the series opener, Philadelphia regained home court advantage in Game 3 and can take command with a win in Game 4.

Game 3 saw the Hawks defence attempt to key in on Joel Embiid, who had his lowest scoring output of the series with 27 points but added nine rebounds, eight assists and three blocks. Tobias Harris (22) and Ben Simmons (18) combined to score 40 points for Philly.

It wasn't all positive for the Sixers, however, as Danny Green exited the game early with a strained calf and will now be out for 2-3 weeks. Head coach Doc Rivers has remained secretive on who will start in Green's place, but the lineup adjustment could have major bearing on how Philadelphia comes out of the gate. Sharpshooter Furkan Korkmaz and defensive ace Matisse Thybulle are two likely candidates.

Atlanta, on the other hand, will come with a sense of urgency as it looks to avoid falling in a 3-1 hole. Keep an eye on whether or not Trae Young can find ways to get more comfortable on offence when dealing with the stifling defence of Simmons and Thybulle, who have each made life difficult for him in Philly's wins.

For the Hawks defence, keeping Embiid off the free throw line must be a point of emphasis. The Sixers All-Star center has attempted 42 free throws through three games, including 16 in Game 3.

No. 1 Utah Jazz vs. No. 4 LA Clippers - Game 4, 10:00 p.m., TSN 3/4

Jazz lead 2-1

The Clippers got on the board in this series with a dominant Game 3 win that was fuelled by the All-Star duo of Paul George and Kawhi Leonard.

Given the issues surrounding this Utah team, LA is in a good position to tie things up at two games apiece.

Entering Game 4, Donovan Mitchell (ankle) and Mike Conley (hamstring) are both dealing with ailments. While Mitchell expressed that he'd be good to go during his postgame presser following Game 3, Conley has again been ruled out.

Without Conley, the Jazz desperately need the scoring and playmaking abilities of Mitchell but if he's hobbled, the offence will take a massive hit.

LA needs more of the same from its All-Star duo in Game 4. In Game 4, Kawhi continued his stellar fourth quarter play he's put on display all postseason, while George set the tone early with 20 first-half points in the contest.

Defensively, the Clippers seem to have figured out how to make life difficult for Mitchell, so it will be a major point to see how Quin Snyder adjusts for the sake of the prolific All-Star.
