Article Summary:

PHILADELPHIA – – Trae Young put an early smackdown on Philly that had the Hawks in control of Game 1 and finished the win with a lob to John Collins for a one-handed jam.

The Hawks used a 17-0 run in the first half – they hit 20 3s overall – and Young was shaking, saluting and toying with the Sixers and the crowd.

The 6-foot-1 Young led the Hawks to the playoffs for the first time since 2017 and has craved the pressure that comes with playing big postseason games in big markets. Embiid, who sat out the Game 5 clincher, grimaced at times against the Hawks and hit the floor hard when he lunged at Collins and fouled him.
