Celtics Fans Chant ‘F*** Trae Young’; Hawks Star Shuts Down TD Garden With Game Winner

Videos by OutKick

Trae Young shut down rabid Boston Celtics fans at TD Garden with an ice-cold game-winner.

C’s fans may be kicking themselves for chanting “F*** Trae Young” moments before the Hawks star sunk a deep three, with seconds left in regulation, to elevate Atlanta over Boston, 119-117.

Boston was one game away from winning the series coming into Tuesday’s Game 5, up 3-1.


Facing the one-point deficit, Young challenged Jaylen Brown — one of the league’s premier two-way players — from beyond the arc. His gall paid off as Young hit the go-ahead shot and gave the mocking home crowd a “shivering” gesture — letting them know he’s got ice in his veins.

Trolling Young was a bold move by TD Garden; ultimately it didn’t pay off.

The Celtics spoiled an exceptional first-half performance from Brown (23 points, 35 total) and a Hawks team down Dejounte Murray.

Boston enjoyed a comfortable lead through three quarters but melted down in the fourth. The Hawks outscored the Celtics, 37-25, and won by two points.

Young, a divisive NBA All-Star, was the star of the night: scoring 38 points to keep the Hawks’ postseason alive.

The series flips back to Atlanta for Game 6, where the Hawks will get Murray back from suspension.
