Thomas' double-double not nearly enough as Hawks soar past Celtics

The Hawks are going to Cleveland next up.

ISAIAH THOMAS’ DOUBLE-DOUBLE of 25 points and 10 assists was not enough to force a seventh and deciding game for Boston Celtics. The Atlanta Hawks advanced to the eastern conference semi-finals with a crushing 104 – 92 away in game six.

Atlanta were made to work for their spot in the second round, having opened the play-off series with back-to-back wins, only to drop consecutive games to the Celtics, before regaining a 3-2 lead.

The Hawks had an even contribution from their starters, with Al Horford (15), Paul Millsap (17), Kyle Korver (14), Kent Bazemore (15), Dennis Schroder (12) and Jeff Teague (11) all posting double-digit points.

The series win sets up a meeting with LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers.
