What a night in Atlanta. The Hawks defeated the Heat 110-108 to win their third consecutive game. The game could have easily gone the other way had Jimmy Butler made one of two good looks at the basket near the end of regulation. Oh well, Atlanta will take it. It wasn't easy, but here are the five best plays from the thrilling game.
The game started off ominous when Heat forward Max Strus came out red hot. This isn't the first time the Hawks have been burned by the sharpshooter. Luckily, they were able to hold him to 15 points, but not before he made this slick move.
Trae Young Stepback
Honestly, I don't know how you guard Hawks point guard Trae Young. Not only is it impossible to stay in front of him, but he will likely make you look silly in the process. Oh well, another day, another opportunity as 'Ice Trae' likes to tell us so often.
Trae Young, Bam Adebayo
Like the Dwyane Wade gif, "I love it." Not only can players not guard Trae Young, but they are going to lose arguments as well. If you make the soft-spoken guard upset, he's going to cook you and your teammates. Plain and simple. Watch how this situation unfolded.
John Collins Fans
Nah, this is too cute. John Collins is a man of the people - regardless of age. If we are keeping it a buck, I have wanted to run out on the court like this little fan before. This team, especially Collins, is so good for Atlanta.
Trae Young Shoes
Hawks fans had a great night, to be honest. Trae Young kept his tradition of gifting his game-worn shoes to fans alive following the thrilling win. The marketing for the Adidas Trae Young 1, both planned and spontaneous, has been outstanding. Make sure you buy your pair while you still can.
