Article Summary:

“We felt like those games in Atlanta, whether it was energy from the crowd or whatever it was, they swung and punched us in the mouth. We didn’t want to take any chances. We wanted to come out strong and hit first.”

Game 6 is Saturday in Atlanta, with the winner of the series facing the Phoenix Suns in the NBA Finals. Antetokounmpo landed awkwardly after trying to block Clint Capela’s dunk attempt in Game 4.

Just as the Hawks’ role players delivered with Young sidelined in Game 4, Antetokounmpo’s teammates came through Thursday. “We definitely need to start the game better.”

This marked the second straight game in this series without any lead changes. The Hawks never trailed in Game 4.

TIP-INS

Hawks: McMillan said he expects Young to be a game-time decision on Saturday.
