NBA playoffs: Milwaukee Bucks best moments vs. Atlanta Hawks Game 4
The city of Atlanta is coping without its last favorite son in Tuesday’s Game 4.
All eyes were on Trae Young’s status in the switch between the Atlanta Hawks and the Milwaukee Bucks.
In Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Finals, Young suffered a bone contusion when he inadvertently stepped on a referee’s foot at the end of the third quarter.
The 22-year-old guard was questionable heading into Game 4, but before kick-off news broke that he would be barred from Atlanta’s roster.
Will the Hawks be able to tie the series without their best player?
Here are the best moments of Game 4:
At first, the Hawks showed little to no sign of difficulty without their All-Star point guard.
They quickly took a 10-2 lead, thanks to a great two-way job between John Collins and Clint Capela.
