After the game, Young told the media that the Hawks “have no roof.”
“It’s something that they asked me a lot at the beginning of the season, and I was already saying that I didn’t think we had any limits. We can go as far as we want. We don’t have any limits unless it’s the finals. I believe in this team, and we all believe in the finals. each other, “Young explained.
“This is my favorite team of all that I have been part of. It is a special group, it is unique, ” added the 22-year-old guard.
Young justified the shoulder movement with which he preceded a triple in the third triple and which some interpreted as a mockery of the Bucks players.
The point guard downplayed the gesture and said “I had a lot of time, and I was a bit tired, so I had a second to take a deep breath and score the triple.” Young also stated that the Hawks’ key is “attention to detail.”
