Hawks keep their season alive at home

Slander Trae Young all you want, but he’s still one of the most exciting players to watch in the NBA. We all knew the Hawks were capable of winning at least one game in this series and they picked it up last night at home.

Young had a rough start to the series but made up for it last night as the Hawks beat the Celtics 130-122. Young posted 32 points, six rebounds and nine assists. He had some extra help from Dejounte Murray who had 25 points, six rebounds and five assists and it never hurts when your bench pours in 44 points.

Last night was just an off night for Boston but most of us still expect them to win the series. Jayson Tatum didn’t play his best, but don’t expect that to happen often. He scored a team-high 29 points but went 9-of-22 and 4-of-11 from three range.
