Bogdan Bogdanovic saves Atlanta from epic collapse in bonkers Game 1 ending vs. Sixers

Hawks, Bogdan Bogdanovic


The Atlanta Hawks looked like they were going to cruise to victory against the Philadelphia 76ers in Game 1 of their second-round series, going up by as many as 26 points and holding a 14-point lead with three and a half minutes to go. However, a frenetic 11-0 Sixers run down the stretch had the Hawks frazzled, and it looked like the road team was about to choke the game away.

But Bogdan Bogdanovic silenced the raucous Philly crowd with a clutch 3-pointer with 41.4 seconds to play, giving Atlanta a 121-115 lead. Ice in the veins from Bogie:

A whole lot of bonkers stuff happened in the final minute, including several Hawks turnovers, but Bogdanovic finally put the game away with two clutch free throws after he committed one of those turnovers while being tackled by Sixers defenders. Atlanta held on to earn a 128-124 win to take a 1-0 series lead.
