Youngin, Trae Game 5 against the Boston Celtics was too cold to handle in the closing moments. In the opening round of the playoffs, the Atlanta Hawks continue to play. All praise goes to Young for his motivational performance. Going into the game the Hawks were on the brink of elimination from the playoffs, as they came into the game 3-1. However, the Hawks fans will get to watch at least one more game before this season is over.
Young has acquired a nickname for himself asIce Trae, for his 3-point shooting at clutch moments. Last night was one of those nights when he would get to do it against theCeltics, who are favorites in the tournament. Nonetheless, Trae shot a clutch- 3-pointer to take the lead with 1.5 remaining on the clock. The fans were overjoyed with what they saw last night as they now travel back to Atlanta for Game 6.
After hitting the clutch 3-pointer to take the lead, Trae did his signature celebration, as he knew the game is over for the Celtics. TheHawksfans are no strangers to seeing their best player delivering clutch performances when they need it. Last night the fans witnessed yet another 38-point display and a clutch 3 to end the night. The fans took to Twitter to show their appreciation and one fan even compared him to Luka Doncic.You don t see luka doing this,commented a fan.

Though the fans enjoyed the clutch 3-pointer from Trae, they took a subtle dig at Luka who failed to make it to the playoffs. However, that said it has been an unfortunate ending to the season for Luka. Regardless, the Hawks now travel home, where they will either keep the series alive or not.
Can Trae Young inspire the Atlanta Hawks to an upset against the Boston Celtics at home?
Game 6 will be held at the home of the Hawks. With the Celtics needing 1 game to progress to the second round, the State Farm Arena will be a fortress. There will be a lot on the line and what better way for Young to keep his team in the tie at home? Young isaveraging26.8 points per game this series and another big performance will be required of him. The Hawks clawed their way back to beat the Celtics 119-117, with Young pitching in a 38-point game.
It was going to be a tough task for the Hawks to keep their season alive after the suspension of Deajounte Murray. However, Young came out with an electrifying performance, to keep the Celtics from progressing. With the next game once again a decider, the Hawks have all to do in order to keep their season alive.
