The Miami Heat comfortably won their 4th game against the Atlanta Hawks with a scoreline of 110-86. The Heat now lead the series 3-1. Trae Young willed his team to the victory in game 3, however, he was nowhere close to that in game 4. He scored just 9 points, only making 3 of his 11 field goal attempts. As bad as it is, Trae Young’s comments about not being closely guarded consistently like this since high school is getting thrashed in social media.

The Luka Doncic comparisons are natural as both players were swapped for each other by their respective teams in the 2018 draft. And they will be linked forever.

Trae Young’s struggles

Trae Young had a somewhat of a similar game to game 1. While he had 8 points in game 1, Young managed to score 9 in game 4. But he was 0-7 from the 3-point line in game 1 and made 3-10 in game 4. That’s it. Trae Young only scored the three 3 pointers. He didn’t even go to the free-throw line.

Trae Young standing at 6’1 and 164 pounds might not be a big help against one of the strongest defensive sides in the league. But he has to try to get to the free-throw line to help the Hawks. Also, Trae Young has to find open teammates as much as possible when he is double-teamed.

The Miami Heat are looking ready to move to the next round without playing game 6 or 7. The Heat won the three games very comfortably and lost game 3 only by a single point. Jimmy Butler is having a great series so far. He scored 36 points in the game, the most by any player. Jimmy also had 10 rebounds to register the only double-double of the game.

And Victor Oladipo’s return is a huge boost for the Heat. He scored 6 points with 8 rebounds and 4 assists. While he did struggle a bit with his shooting, he will be hoping to be efficient next game.

The Hawks had someone return to the lineup in Clint Capela. However, he wasn’t able to help the Hawks a lot. Capela scored 2 points with an FG% of 25 and gathered 7 rebounds. To be able to beat a team like the Miami Heat, the Atlanta Hawks definitely need their superstar Trae Young to be at his best. Trae Young and the Atlanta Hawks should hit on all cylinders to win game 5.
