The Atlanta Hawks know that the NBA playoffs is no longer within reach. Regardless, Trae Young could care less. He continues to compete and hold up the fort for head coach Lloyd Pierce. He has gotten help from John Collins and DeAndre Hunter but their efforts have fallen short. Atlanta is simply trying to finish the season strong with hopes of a better 2020-21 NBA season.
