Trae Young and the Atlanta Hawks were on top of the world in Game 1. They collapsed in Game 2, being run over by the Milwaukee Bucks, 125-91.
While there isn’t much to like from a basketball standpoint if you’re a Hawks fan, there was indeed a little silver lining in the middle of the garbage time that was played in. the match 2. Trae Young was vocal to reporters on the swingman’s return to sophomore Cam Reddish.
“I think that [Cam Reddish], to be honest, was our only positive thing tonight. Seeing Cam again, seeing him on the pitch was great, he was playing great, was aggressive. It was one of, if not our only bright spot tonight.
Reddish definitely showed some flashes for the Hawks in 17 minutes of action. He posted 11 points and two rebounds, making four of his 10 field attempts. But more importantly, the eye test just showed he was comfortable getting to his places on the court. It’s a welcome sight after Reddish had a non-surgical procedure to treat a persistent Achilles tendon injury in March.

While it remains to be seen how much the 2019 lottery pick will impact the rest of the series for the Hawks, Trae Young wouldn’t mind seeing what the youngster can do.
