Dejounte Murray’s buzzer beating basket gives the Hawks a 106-104 victory against Magic

For their sixth straight home game, the Atlanta Hawks hosted the Orlando Magic.

The Hawks’ first basket came from Jalen Johnson, who made both of his free throws after Paolo Banchero fouled him while he was driving to the basket.

Young took a while to get up after tripping and falling early on while attempting to advance on Banchero. He participated in a few possessions before leaving the game. Snyder made his first substitutions, switching to the lineups of Okongwu and Capela.

Both teams had a really poor offensive start to the game, with the Hawks committing six turnovers. One quarter of play saw the score knotted at 26.

The Hawks got off to a strong offensive start in the third quarter, and Young really started to shine. He gave Okongwu a dime and scored a and-one layup on his next possession.

But in the first six minutes of the second quarter, the Hawks committed seven turnovers, increasing their total to 13. Before Johnson’s two-point shot to break the drought, they went more than three minutes without scoring.

The Hawks lost the game as a result of the turnover-bananza, but Murray’s three-pointer (with a huge assist from Young) tied the score at 47.

At the half, the Hawks led 51–49. Capela failed to get a rebound during the whole first half.

Before the Magic made any substitutes in the middle of the third quarter, they had a seven-point advantage.

After battling back to level the game, the Hawks eventually took the lead with a three-pointer made by Garrison Mathews late in the quarter.

The Hawks had a 78-76 lead going into the fourth quarter. Young contributed to two buckets made by Okongwu, and Dejounte Murray’s midrange basket tied the score at ninety. Young had tossed 11 assists, but he had nine turnovers as well.

With less than five minutes left, the game was tied at one point. In the fourth, Capela arrived later than usual, and Okongwu returned at 4:21 to conclude the match.

There were less than two minutes remaining in the game when Murray finally got a floater to sink following a crazy possession.
With less than 40 seconds left and a one-point lead, Young went down and was fouled in order to get to the free throw line. He scored on both to take a three-point advantage. Then Paolo Banchero arrived and tied it with a three-pointer.

Dejounte Murray came at it from the opposite direction, working out for his own midrange and knocking it down as time ran out to win it.
