Middleton slams Hawks as Bucks lead 2-1 in series

With a huge last quarter of 20 points, Khris Middleton commanded Sunday’s victory for the Milwaukee Bucks 113-102 on the court of the Atlanta Hawks with which they advance 2-1 in this final of the Eastern conference of the NBA.

The problems for the Hawks could be compounded by an ankle injury suffered in the third quarter by their star, Trae Young, which changed the pace of the game.

The point guard, who finished with 35 points and 6 triples, returned to the court in the fourth quarter but was unable to resume his fierce scoring rhythm as Middleton began his unstoppable display.
