A record-breaking game from Trae Young gives the Hawks a historic victory in Game 1 of the Conference Finals.
Giannis Antetokounmpo and Jrue Holiday combine for 67 points, 19 assists and 16 rebounds but it wasn't enough as Young put on a show. He became the first player in Conference Finals history to record at least 45 points and 10 assists.
His performance and the Hawks' upset victory had Twitter buzzing, especially NBA players - past and present.
