How did the opponent perform in Game 6 between the Milwaukee Bucks and Atlanta Hawks?

. Opponent. ATLANTA HAWKS . C+. The Atlanta Hawks got Trae Young back for this matchup after he missed the previous two with a tweaked ankle, but it was clear that he was not up to par. Young finished with a mere 14 points on 4-of-17 shooting from the floor, which included missing all six of his 3-point attempts. He did dish out nine assists, to his credit. With their leader struggling, the Hawks needed a boost from their supporting cast, and Cam Reddish stepped up. The forward had a red-hot shooting night as he finished with 21 points on 7-of-21 shooting, including making six triples on seven attempts. His late push helped the Hawks cut their deficit down to single digits after the Bucks had previously been up by 20, but he could not do it alone. Once upon a time almost Milwaukee Buck Bogdan Bogdanovic finished with 20 points on 58.3 percent shooting from the floor and 40 percent shooting from deep, but it was not enough. Clint Capela, Danilo Gallinari, and John Collins all finished in double figures in scoring, but they were simply outdueled by the Bucks and their resilience. Atlanta’s 16 turnovers on the night certainly did not help the cause, with Young accounting for five of those on his own. Shoutout to the Hawks for a hard-fought battle in these playoffs and making it to the Eastern Conference Finals.
