Trae Young nailed a last-gasp three-pointer as the Atlanta Hawks stunned the Boston Celtics 119-117 to keep their Eastern Conference playoff series alive on Tuesday.
Young drained a 29-footer with just 1.8 seconds remaining to silence Boston’s TD Garden and ensure a game six back in Atlanta on Thursday.
Young, who finished with 38 points, 13 assists and four rebounds, said the Hawks had been determined to extend the series following the suspension of key guard Dejounte Murray.

Murray was suspended after a clash with a referee after game four on Sunday. “We were missing a big piece of ours and we want him to play game six, so we want to go back home and have him with us,” Young said of Murray.
