Trae Young and Hawks Hyped Ahead of Game 1 vs Bucks
This is the first time since 1994 that a team who had no all-stars had made it into the Conference finals. Talking about their matchups with Milwaukee Bucks, the Hawks surely are less popular on the sheets. So, was the case against the 76ers as well. Yet the Atlanta Hawks came out as the best among the two teams over the course of 7 games.
However, with Kevin Huerter emerging as the unsung hero for the Hawks in Game 7, many would expect him to support marquee scorer Trae Young in the same ways. If they were to break through a completely healthy and fit Bucks’ defense.
Having said that, Huerter’s explosion couldn’t come at a better time for the Hawks, especially with Young shooting only 5-of-23 from the field. It’s clear that the defenses of opposing teams can put a straitjacket on Young, and it’s imperative for his teammates to take the scoring cudgels when needed.
The odds are stacked against the Hawks versus the Bucks. But if there’s anything they have proven: They never going to give up, they never going to let you down. Let’s see who comes out on top as the Game 1 action of Trae Young’s Hawks vs Bucks commences in less than 48 hours.
