Trae Young has impressed with his skills in his early NBA career. Young has played an instrumental role in the success of the Atlanta Hawks this season and has continued to impress with his game. The 22-year old was at his best in the Friday night game against Chicago Bulls as he came up with a mind-blowing performance.
In fact, Chicago Bulls’ player Zach LaVine hogged the limelight with his impressive show as he scored 50 points and grabbed the headlines. However, LaVine’s heroics went in vain as Young delivered a match-winning performance for Atlanta Hawks.
Young came up with a complete performance against Chicago Bulls as he scored 42 points, eight rebounds, and nine assists. This was the 16th game of his career in which he has scored more than 40 points and has had more than five assists in a game.
