The NBA Playoffs always seems to have one Cinderella team and this year it was the Atlanta Hawks. The Hawks have surprised everyone by reaching the Eastern Conference Finals, but their luck may have finally run out. Atlanta dropped game 3 to the Milwaukee Bucks, 113-102, to go down in the series 2-1.
That loss has caused the Hawks' NBA Finals odds to plummet.

The Hawks had odds set at +1600 heading into Sunday night, but those odds have dropped all the way down to +3200. That places them in a tie with the Los Angeles Clippers for the longest odds left in the field as oddsmakers do not predict a big comeback in this series.
Point guard Trae Young has been on fire during his first playoff experience and led his team once again in Game 3, scoring 35 points on 12-23 shooting. However, the Bucks seemed to have an answer every time down the court as Khris Middleton went off, tying his playoff career high with 38 points. The veteran guard shot 15-26 from the field including 6-12 from beyond the 3-point line.
