When Trae Young hit the game-winning shot against the Boston Celtics on Monday night, he created a problem.

The problem is that Game 6 between the Celtics and Atlanta Hawks is now scheduled to coincide with a Janet Jackson concert in the same arena.

The good news is that Jackson consented to have her concert pushed back to another night so fans of both won’t have to miss anything.

“All tickets for Thursday night’s show will be honored for Friday night,” Live Nation said of the concert. “Refunds will be available at point of purchase for those who are unable to attend.”

Young offered a kinda apology to the singer for having her concert pushed to Friday night as well.

“Sorry not sorry to this LEGEND,” he tweeted. “Hope she can be at the game now!”

No word from Jackson’s camp if she plans to attend, but we wouldn’t be shocked if she actually showed up.

Jackson’s “Together Again Tour” has been a hit across the country and she has hitting the road in the Southeast of late.

She was in Birmingham last Saturday night, Savannah Sunday night, and is now making the rounds in Atlanta with two shows.

Jackson has been a good sport about this, even congratulating the team on their victory on her Instagram page.

The Celtics and Hawks will face off Thursday night in Game 6 of their best-of-seven series.
