The Milwaukee Bucks were able to defeat the Atlanta Hawks in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Finals 113-102, Sunday night, after Trae Young was taken out of the game with an ankle injury, late in the third quarter. Young later returned in the fourth quarter, but the damage was already done. Milwaukee outscored Atlanta 30-17 in the final quarter.
Hawks coach Nate McMillan spoke about Young’s injury after the game: “I don’t know right now. I think, when he returned to the floor, he was obviously limping on that, and when I subbed him, we decided just keep him out.”
