The Hawks were stunning without Trae Young

Milwaukee finished without Giannis Antetokounmpo but Atlanta never had Trae Young and still blew the Bucks out, 110-88, in one of the most impressive performances of this year’s NBA playoffs.

Antetokounmpo left in the third with a hyperextended knee but it might not have mattered. Atlanta was up 51-38 at the half but Milwaukee never caught up with Antetokounmpo and they weren’t likely to without him.

Cam Reddish got rotation minutes, scoring 12 points in 23 minutes. He hit 2-3 from deep and 5-9 overall.

What can you say? The Hawks pulled out a massive win without their star, Milwaukee’s may be limited going forward and with the series tied 2-2, the momentum appears to be all Atlanta’s.

On Wednesday, the chippy Clippers-Phoenix series resumes with the Suns up 3-2.
