- Celtics 0 and 2 on a three-game road trip as they arrived in Atlanta. Boston brings a pair of All-Stars to the festivities. Trae Young not an all-Star for 2021 but played a starring role early on in this one. Watch him pull up from the logo for 3. And then Young on the miss, follow your shot. Shooters should know it.

He did-- drops the floater. Young with 17 in the first quarter. Hawks are off and running.

Second quarter. Kevin Huerter to Danilo Gallinari. And Gallo had the feeling. He'll knock down a 3 and just keep it going. Tony Snell knows where to find him. Gallo with 18 in the second quarter.

Young still at it. Oh, can't turn your back on Trae Young. It's off Grant Williams' back, off the inbound. Clever, clever. Young with 33 on the night. Hawks already up by 22 at that point.

And now it's just gravy time for Danilo Gallinari, who was 10 of 12 from 3-point range-- a career high, a Hawks franchise record as well. He had 38-- most he scored in a game since April of 2015. And Atlanta rolls.
