Bucks take 2-1 series lead behind Middleton’s fourth quarter heroics



Article Summary:

Young exploded for 15 points in the third quarter, helping propel the Hawks to a slim 85-83 lead heading into the fourth quarter. “17 points in the fourth. I think for the most part we got good looks and tried to attack matchups like we have in the past, and just weren’t as successful at it.”

It was a powerful 25-7 run overall by Milwaukee over the final 7:13 that allowed them close out the crucial 113-102 Game 3 win, taking a 2-1 series lead in the process. “That’s a big part of my game, my ability to blow by anybody. When you’re on the left side and you’re trying to blow by, you’ve got to use your right foot. So my left hand pass to Bogi – I was going down the left side, it was in a lot of pain going back.”

Young had just four shot attempts and three points in the fourth while battling the sore ankle, posting a -15 plus-minus across nearly eight fourth-quarter minutes.

With Young set for an MRI Monday morning, more will be known about his status for Game 4 hopefully at some point tomorrow afternoon.
