Trae Young and company have been on a tear, completing a seven-game escape against the top seed Philadelphia 76ers in the previous round of the NBA Playoffs. As expected, Hawks fans were completely ecstatic that they’re back in the Eastern Conference Finals. One fan even made an absolutely fire video that would make everyone hyped! Turn up!

It never fails.
Rick Astley’s “Never Gonna Give You Up” will forever be more fire than Jermaine Dupri’s “Welcome to Atlanta.”
Seriously though, young swingman Kevin Huerter has been big for the Hawks. He was the unsung hero in their Game 7 win over the Sixers, putting up a postseason career-high 27 points on 10-of-18 shooting while adding seven rebounds. The former Maryland standout also played decent defense against Ben Simmons and Tobias Harris.
Huerter’s explosion couldn’t come at a better time for the Hawks, especially with Young shooting only 5-of-23 from the field. It’s clear that the defenses of opposing teams can put a straitjacket on Young, and it’s imperative for his teammates to take the scoring cudgels when needed.
The odds are stacked against the Hawks versus the Bucks. But if there’s anything they have proven: They never gonna give up, they never gonna let you down.
