Trae Young exploded with an enormous 48 points as his Atlanta Hawks claimed the first game of the Eastern Conference Finals 116-113 over the Milwaukee Bucks.

The Bucks were on a 13-game winning streak at home before Young and his side showed up to give the hosts their first loss at Fiserv Forum in the post-season.

Giannis Antetokounmpo registered 34 points, 12 rebounds and nine assists for Milwaukee, with the Greek contributing six points during a 9-0 run which turned a 98-96 deficit into a 105-98 advantage with just over four minutes left on the clock.

The game continued to go back and forth until Clint Capela snatched his play-off career-high 19th rebound and hit the net to give Atlanta the lead for good.

Fittingly it was Young who closed out the scoring, with the 2018 first-round pick collecting the final points with two free throws and five seconds remaining.

Two-time MVP Antetokounmpo will look to Khris Middleton, who shot just six of 23 and missed all nine of his three-point efforts, as the Bucks attempt to recover from their losing start when they host game two on Friday.
