The Hawks wake up against the NBA champions | NBA

November 22. Since that date, the Hawks had not won in front of their public, and game after game, they sank into mediocrity with a catastrophic defense. But Martin Luther King Day inspired them, and Trae Young’s teammates find the physical and mental resources to make the difference in the last quarter, and win 121-114 against the Bucks.

However, Milwaukee had the game in hand with an 11-point lead nine minutes from the end (97-86), and even another 10-point lead with seven minutes remaining. But the Bucks will mess up their basketball with a lot of trash, and it’s Danillo Gallinari who wakes up his teammates with the And-1. Then Trae Young steals a ball, transformed into 3-pointers by De’Andre Hunter. In one minute, the Hawks have halved the gap (100-97).

Middleton loses a ball, then he continues with an offensive foul. Young then Gallinari sanctioned, and the Hawks went ahead (104-103). Suddenly, the Hawks are playing fair, and Kevin Huerter “à la Tyler Herro” then Young, at 3-pointers, drive the point home (111-105). It only remains to manage the last two minutes, and the arm of Young does not tremble at the free throws for a victory in form of deliverance.

TOPS/FLOPS

Trae Young. There is still waste but 33 points, 11 assists, and a 14 of 14 in free throws, it’s tough. He planted 14 points in the last quarter, and he found his 3-point address at the best time.

Danilo Gallinari. It’s not his best game of the season, but it’s him who triggers it in the middle of the 4th quarter. The Italian plants 16 points at 80% on shots.

Onyeka Okongwu. His defense in the last quarter on Giannis Antetokounmpo. And as a bonus, he scored a decisive basket.

✅ ⛔ Khris Middleton. It’s been a long time since we’ve seen him so aggressive in attack. So aggressive that he loses 8 balls, so two at the worst time…
