Hawks drop ninth straight despite heroics from Trae Young, 105-104

The Atlanta Hawks made their way to Indianapolis on Friday night for a matchup with the Pacers , currently sitting in sixth place in the NBA’s Eastern Conference.

Alex Len was a big part of the Hawks’ first quarter offense as he was able to work his way into the lane to be on the receiving end of some wonderful Young passes to the rim.

At the end of the first, the Hawks actually found themselves leading 23-22 which has not been the case in nearly any of their other games this season, where the first quarter has been a problem point for this young team.

Indiana continued to get reasonable looks that they were just missing, but to Atlanta’s credit, they did a good job of running the Pacers off the three-point line.

The Hawks were only able to score 11 points in the 12 third quarter minutes while Indiana poured on 29 of their own, but at the end of three, Atlanta only found themselves down 72-65 with the game still in the balance.

Lloyd Pierce took a timeout to try and draw up a play with 1:40 remaining and got Alex Len a wide open look under the basket to tie the game again at 99.
