The Atlanta Hawks are back in the Eastern conference finals for the first time since 2014-15 after upsetting the Philadelphia 76ers in Game 7. The Hawks will meet the Milwaukee Bucks in the final round of the East playoffs and attempt to make the Finals ahead of schedule.
This young Atlanta squad is making a deep run in the postseason after struggling at the beginning of the year. Interim head coach Nate McMillan has been a refreshing voice for the players, who have responded in the postseason. Here’s the Hawks players in Finals MVP consideration.
2021 NBA Finals MVP odds: Atlanta Hawks
Trae Young, +1200
Bogdan Bogdanovic, +15000
John Collins, +20000
Clint Capela, +25000
Our pick: Trae Young
The Hawks are fourth among teams left standing to win the title according to DraftKings Sportsbook, so any scenario where that happens likely means Young goes off. He’s already averaging 29.1 points and 10.4 assists per game in his first postseason and will be the leader for the Hawks should they win it all.
