Through the first two games of the Celtics-Hawks series in Boston, the Celtics dominated wire-to-wire. As the series shifted to Atlanta the Hawks certainly seemed to pick up some home court momentum. Behind a monster second quarter, the Hawks came away with a 130-122 victory at State Farm Arena in Game 3 on Friday night.
The biggest change in this game was the Hawks’ two stars heating up for the first time in this series. Trae Young finished with a game-high 32 points on 12-of-22 shooting, including 15 points in the fourth quarter alone. Dejonte Murray was also a problem, scoring 25 points on 11-of-21 shooting and adding six rebounds and five assists.
