Trae Young was once again unstoppable and the Atlanta Hawks now lead the Eastern Conference Finals series vs the Milwaukee Bucks.

Young went for a playoff career high 48 points (17/34 shooting), along with seven rebounds and 11 assists, as the Hawks survived a late thriller vs the Bucks.

The explosive guard outshined Giannis Antetokounmpo (34 points, 12 boards, nine assists), helping Atlanta return from a nine-point deficit to win the game (116-113).

Trae Young and the Hawks will attempt to extend their lead in Game 2, which will take place on Friday at Fiserv Forum.
