(AP) - Trae Young overcame a cold start to score 25 points, including a floater that gave Atlanta the lead with 1:17 remaining, and the Hawks rallied to beat the Philadelphia 76ers 103-100.

The Hawks tied the Eastern Conference semifinal at 2-2. Philly blew an 18-point lead and may have bigger concerns. Big man Joel Embiid spent time in the locker room in the second quarter and didn’t make a field goal in the second half.

Embiid has been playing with torn cartilage in his right knee. Bogdan Bogdanovic scored 22 points for the Hawks. Young made only 8 of 26 shots but had 18 assists. Game 5 is Wednesday night in Philadelphia.
