Tuesday night’s Eastern Conference Finals matchup between the Hawks and Bucks turned out to be a blowout win for Atlanta. Even without Trae Young, the Hawks found a way to jump out to an early lead and never look back.
We broke down Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Finals here.
No. 3 Bucks 88, No. 5 Hawks 110
Series Tied 2-2
In a game where the Hawks were heavy underdogs without an injured Trae Young, Atlanta came out hot, getting even with the Bucks as they tied the series. What’s worse for the Bucks is that Giannis Antetokounmpo left the game early with a left knee hyper-extension and would not return. With his status for the rest of the series up in the air, momentum shifted heavily in Game 4.
Lou Williams led the Hawks in scoring, stepping in as a starter with 21 points on just nine shots. Bogdan Bogdanovic converted on six threes, finishing with 20 points of his own. Milwaukee struggled tremendously on offense, with nobody eclipsing the 20-point mark on Tuesday night. Jrue Holiday tried carrying the offense with 19 points and nine assists but didn’t get much help from the remainder of the team, especially with Antetokounmpo going down after playing just 24 minutes.
