Young’s last two made shots from the field before icing the 103-96 win with three free throws, were his two trademarks – a floater in the lane, then a bomb from 29 feet. Huerter led the team with 27 points and was the best shot-maker on the floor for the Hawks in Game 7, hitting tough jumpers over Tobias Harris and picking on Seth Curry while advancing to the basket. The Hawks are off to the East finals thanks to some fourth-quarter magic from Ice Trae.
