Atlanta Hawks’ Trae Young (foot) goes cold in return, held to 14 in Game 6 loss



Article Summary:

MILWAUKEE – Atlanta Hawks guard Trae Young struggled in his return from a two-game absence Saturday night, scoring 14 points on 4-of-17 shooting in a series-ending 118-107 loss to the Milwaukee Bucks in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference finals.

Young was a game-time decision for the third straight game because of a bone bruise in his right foot and sprained right ankle suffered when he inadvertently stepped on referee Sean Wright’s foot late in the third quarter of Game 3.

Young tested his foot before Game 6 – a process he went through before Games 4 and 5 before deciding he couldn’t play – and felt good enough to play.

Young missed all six of his 3-point attempts Saturday but went 6-of-7 from the free throw line. He led the fifth-seeded Hawks to upset victories over the fourth-seeded New York Knicks and top-seeded Philadelphia 76ers.
