Hawks youngster Cam Reddish showed up and balled out tonight, gets recognition from NBA Twitter for his performance against the Bucks
The Atlanta Hawks have had their backs against the wall all playoffs. When they played their first series, everyone cared more about the resurgence of the Knicks. When they played the second round, everyone was busy criticizing the Sixers. Now, they have tied things up with the Bucks heading into Game 5. They won Game 4 without their bonafide star Trae Young.
The Hawks showed up and performed as a group in the absence of their floor general. There were six Hawks players scoring in double digits. The entire squad stepped up and made sure they could secure the win for Trae and for the team. Along with being outstanding on the offensive end, they were spectacular on the defensive end as well. Cam Reddish was a force on the defensive end, as he clamped up Khris Middleton.
Cam Reddish gets recognition by NBA Twitter
After the game, the NBA Twitter went crazy hyping up Cam Reddish. Reddish, who was the 10th pick in the 2019 draft, had missed four months of basketball after he suffered Achilles soreness. He contributed some valuable points while taking on the defensive assignment of Khris Middleton.

NBA Analyst Skip Bayless showed his appreciation of the young forward/guard as well.
Hawks looked shockingly good tonight without Trae dominating the ball. I’ve long liked Cam Reddish – he made big shots at Duke. Huerter emerging. Lou can still light it up on occasion. I picked Hawks in 6. But not this way.
