Hawks ride Young’s explosion to comfortable win over Wolves

Brace Hemmelgarn-USA TODAY Sports It wasn’t that long ago that Trae Young had fans of the Atlanta Hawks wondering what happened to his ability to make shots, whether they were from inside the paint or beyond the three-point line. Barely a week ago, the star point guard produced just four points in an ugly blow out loss to the Utah Jazz. Atlanta would go on to lose their sixth in seven contests the following night in Portland. What a difference a week can make! And how different a team can look when its best player finds his rhythm. Young posted 43 points on incredible...

The Atlanta community lost a one of the greatest icon in sports history on Friday. With the inevitable passage of time, mankind loses heroes, icons and legends.

Much of the opening period was uneven on both sides, with the Wolves hanging around as a result. The Hawks did get the last word in the first quarter, though, scoring the final seven points to claim a 25-19 edge. The story of the...
