    Atlanta star Trae Young tweeted his reaction to playing ball with Dejounte Murray after the Hawks traded for the Spurs guard. Trae Young has a new backcourt partner in Atlanta and he seems to be thrilled about it. On Wednesday, the Hawks traded Danilo Gallinari and multiple first-round draft picks to grab Spurs guard Dejounte Murray. While it required a hefty price, it’s clear the franchise player was all about the deal.Trae Young is “ecstatic” about Hawks trading for Dejounte MurrayThis ???? just got real Let’s get busy my [email protected] pic.twitter.com/D9DBBvtGml — Trae Young (@TheTraeYoung) June 29, 2022 “This just got real Let’s get busy my Brotha,” Young tweeted after the news hit. That tweet definitely backs up the word from behind the scenes. Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports tweeted that Young is “ecstatic” over adding Murray.

    Dejounte Murray has been traded to the Hawks to pair with Trae Young but the Spurs are getting quite a bit of compensation in return. Perhaps never more in the postseason, it was clear that the Atlanta Hawks needed to do something this offseason to reach another level with the roster around star guard Trae Young. On Wednesday just before the start of the new league year, the franchise was able to accomplish exactly that with a blockbuster trade. The Hawks have traded with the San Antonio Spurs for another star guard to pair with Young, Dejounte Murray.Dejounte Murray trade details: Hawks get star guard, Spurs get trove of picksAs you’d surely expect, the Hawks aren’t getting Murray at any type of a discount. As reported by ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, Atlanta will send Danilo Gallinari and three first-round picks, as well as a potential 2026 pick swap, to the Spurs in the deal.

    Getty Trae Young of the Atlanta Hawks issued a warning to the Boston Celtics. The Boston Celtics are on their last legs. They are two wins away from taking home the NBA Championship, but they are simultaneously one loss away from being sent home. It’s a scary position to be in, and right now, everything hinges on Game 6. With their win in Game 5, the Golden State Warriors surged ahead in the series and now hold the power over the Celtics. They’ll have a chance to wrap things up at TD Garden on Thursday night. And according to one NBA superstar, Golden State has one key advantage. During Game 5, Atlanta Hawks point guard Trae Young tweeted out a warning to the Celtics for Game 6. He believes that Warriors star Klay Thompson could have an insane performance. “I feel like Klay going for 50 in Game 6, he just getting warm right now.” Young tweeted. I feel like Klay going for 50 in Game 6 , he just getting warm right now. — Trae Young (@TheTraeYoung)...
    Getty Picks one through 30 are seen on the board at the conclusion of the first round during the 2018 NBA Draft There is a certain ring to “Chicago Bulls point guard, Trae Young” and at least one person thought that was going to be the case. The Bulls would look very different and would be facing a different set of offseason questions. The Bulls are preparing for a summer full of rumors and drama. On top of Zach LaVine’s free agency, they also have to get Lonzo Ball back in action from his torn meniscus. Young’s Atlanta Hawks are trying to get him some help after they suffered a similar 4-1 first-round playoff loss as the Bulls. In their series against the Miami Heat, Young was hounded much in the way that DeMar DeRozan was against the Milwaukee Bucks. But just how close were these two experiences to being different parts of the same story?How Close is “Almost”?Young joined Bulls broadcaster Stacey King on his “Gimme The Hot Sauce” podcast to discuss a wide variety of topics....
    Atlanta Hawks star Trae Young endorses Steve Kerr’s passionate plea for gun reform on Twitter, saying “enough is enough.” For many Americans reeling from the news of the Uvalde school shooting, there’s the question of whether or not gun violence will intersect with their own lives if it hasn’t already. Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr experienced that moment in 1984, when his father, American University of Beirut president Malcolm Kerr, was shot and killed on campus. Regarding his death, Kerr once said the following: “Before my father was killed, my life was impenetrable. Bad things happened to other people.” Kerr’s own intersection with the tragedy of gun violence has made him a passionate advocate for a more just nation, one that puts an end to preventable gun violence. When Kerr took the podium after the Uvalde school shooting, he spoke angrily about a loss that could have been prevented with pending legislation. “Well nothing’s happened with our team in the last six hours, we’re going to start the same way tonight. Any basketball questions don’t matter,” Kerr began....
    Chris Paul‘s reputation took another hit this season after the No. 1-seed Phoenix Suns were upset in the playoffs. But Trae Young says he’s still one of the greatest. It’s been a rough few weeks for Chris Paul. After helping lead the Phoenix Suns to the best record in the NBA, a disappointing playoff loss at the hands of the Dallas Mavericks has added to a lengthy career list of postseason flops. But while plenty of fans are taking the opportunity to ask questions about Paul’s legacy, one of the best young point guards in the NBA is still an admirer. Trae Young spoke with FanSided last week about The Trae Young Family Foundation and his work to support positive mental health and combat bullying. But even in a conversation about this important topics, Young had time to answer some questions about his top five point guards of all time: “Steve Nash, No. 1, just because he’s my favorite player. Chris Paul’s in there, Steph’s in there… There’s a lot. Isiah Thomas. And then… Magic, for sure. I’m tripping.”Trae Young...
    Getty Trae Young defended Ben Simmons on a podcast. It may not seem like, but the last times current Brooklyn Nets star Ben Simmons saw a basketball court was during the 2021 NBA playoffs against the Atlanta Hawks while he was a member of the Philadelphia 76ers. In Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals against the Hawks, Simmons passed up what looked like an easy layup or dunk over Hawks guard Trae Young. Instead of going for the basket, Simmons dumped the ball off to Matisse Thybulle who was fouled on the play. Simmons has been criticized throughout his career for not being a good shooter, and sometimes people say he’s scared to shoot. Passing up the shot over Young didn’t do anything to help that reputation and the Sixers eventually dropped that game to the Hawks. That ended up being the last game Simmons played for the Sixers as he sat out the season until he was traded, but he never got to suit up for the Nets either. Speaking on JJ Redick’s podcast “The Old...
    Getty Trae Young #11 of the Atlanta Hawks. The Boston Celtics definitely had a few scares in Game 3 of the 2022 Eastern Conference Finals against the Miami Heat on May 21, 2022. Not too long after it had been confirmed that Jimmy Butler would not return in the second half of Game 3, Marcus Smart got hurt in what potentially looked like a season-ending ankle injury.

    Getty Marcus Smart, Boston Celtics We’ve seen Marcus Smart grow into an impactful point guard for the Boston Celtics throughout the current NBA season, improving his playmaking and cutting back on ill-advised shot attempts. But, on May 19, against the Miami Heat in the second game of the Eastern Conference Finals, Celtics fans got a reminder of how much Smart has improved this year, as he came back from injury to help lead his team towards a blow-out 127-102 victory. Smart was arguably the most impactful player on the floor during the second game between Boston and Miami. He provided his team with exceptional scoring and playmaking while he also contained Jimmy Butler – the Heat’s most potent offensive weapon. With such an all-action display, it’s no surprise that Smart began to receive praise for his performance, with the Atlanta Hawks’ Trae Young leading the way, Tweeting, ” Marcus Smart makes a huge difference for them! He Hoopin.” Marcus Smart makes a huge difference for them ! He Hoopin???? — Trae Young (@TheTraeYoung) May 20, 2022 Smart ended...
    Plan A apparently could be making a comeback for the Miami Heat, at least temporary. What appeared unlikely after stifling Atlanta Hawks guard Trae Young into submission in the first round of the playoffs stands as a second-round option, as well. James Harden, say hello to Erik Spoelstra’s (not-so) little friends. With MVP contender Joel Embiid sidelined for at least the start of the best-of-seven Eastern Conference semifinal series, the Heat again are presented with the opportunity to create singular misery, after limiting Young to 15.4 points on .319 shooting in the opening round. “In the past series, we were able to defend an elite guard,” Heat guard Tyler Herro said, “and Philly’s got Harden and [Tyrese] Maxey, who are great guards. “So [it means] being able to take our experience from that in the past series and applying it to this next series, if Embiid doesn’t play.” The difference is Young is a 23-year-old neophyte.

    Getty Two-time Oscar winner Denzel Washington(L) visits the Miami Heat to give team a pep talk in Atlanta and cracks a joke about Hawks star Trae Young (R), being guarded by Tyler Herro. The Miami Heat were absolutely dominant in their 110-86 win over the Atlanta Hawks in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference playoff series and based on a video released by Major Films, the team earned that victory following a pep talk from Hollywood legend Denzel Washington. Major Films has worked closely with Heat star Kyle Lowry over the past year, and while it’s unclear how Washington’s meeting with Miami’s roster in Atlanta came to be, the two-time Academy Award winner offered the team wisdom and advice while also roasting a few players.

    To put the intricacies of the Miami Heat’s defensive approach on Trae Young into perspective is to consider that the precepts sometimes are leaving Erik Spoelstra’s team as confused as the increasingly befuddled Atlanta Hawks guard. “Half the time,” Heat forward Jimmy Butler quipped, “I don’t even know what we’re doing, to tell you the truth. But we’re just playing hard.” What the Heat have done though four games of this best-of-seven Eastern Conference open-round playoff series is cut down Young’s numbers to a size that has allowed them to seize a 3-1 lead. “I’m sorry,” Butler said, “but when you’re that ignitable, that you’ve got to send three, four bodies at a time, I’m sorry that we’re the team that has to do it to you, but we’re not going to stop.” In Sunday night’s 110-86 victory at State Farm Arena, the Heat came with so man bodies from so many directions that Young seemingly was left with single option. In closing with nine points on 3-of-11 shooting, all but one of his shots came from beyond the 3-point...
    We’ll this certainly has gotten odd. When Trae Young got on the Atlanta Hawks’ team flight late Tuesday night, Gabe Vincent already was in the seat alongside. When Young got to his car in the airport lot, Vincent had already started it. And when Young got home, Vincent told him he already had taken out the garbage. No, not quite to that level of the relationship. But there already have been ample moments in this best-of-seven opening-round NBA playoff series when the Hawks’ All-Star guard has demanded screens be set with the sole goal of shaking the emerging third-year Miami Heat guard. “I just relish it, to be honest,” Vincent said, with the Heat taking a 2-0 series lead into Friday night’s Game 3 at State Farm Arena. “I haven’t even looked at it from that lens. I’ve just so in the moment. “Even now, just thinking about the next one, the next matchup and what they’re going to do and so forth. I’m just excited to be here.” The thing is, Vincent, 25, has been here for a while....
    Getty Jimmy Butler, Miami Heat With their 115-105 victory on Tuesday, April 19, the Miami Heat took a commanding two-game lead in their opening series against the Atlanta Hawks. Jimmy Butler was the man of the moment after dropping a jaw-dropping 45 points on 60% shooting from the field and 57.1% from deep. However, despite Butler’s heroics, Trae Young chose to focus on Miami’s style of play during his post-game press conference. “Obviously, we felt like we let this one slip away. But if the refs are going to let them be as physical as they are and not call fouls, then it’s gonna be hard to do anything anyway,” Young told the media following the Hawks’ second straight loss.

    It is either a loser’s lament or playing it forward, but, either, way, Trae Young very much went there with his Atlanta Hawks down 0-2 to the Miami Heat in this best-of-seven NBA opening-round series. When it doubt, officiate it out. And out loud. So in the wake of watching the Heat close 25 of 29 from the foul line in their 115-105 victory on Tuesday night at FTX Arena, in a game the Hawks went 11 of 14 on free throws, Young went for the uncommon denominator. “I mean, it’s tough,” the All-Star guard said, with the series now idle until Friday’s 7 p.m. Game 3 at State Farm Arena. “Obviously, we feel like we let one slide. You can’t let it linger too far. I mean, we’ve got another game in a couple days. So, obviously we felt like that one slipped away.” And then came a comment clearly meant to send a message to Friday’s officiating crew. “I mean,” he said, “if the refs are going to let them be as physical as they are and not...
    It started as a small chant Sunday, somewhere in the the upper deck, causing fans in the lower bowl to turn to neighbors in the baffling sound mixer of a big arena to ask, “What’re they saying?” It picked up clarity as it moved down to the lower bowl, then to the court where the Atlanta star who had trouble with his cross-over Sunday now was called out for his comb-over. “Trae is … balding!” the sing-song chant came in the second quarter of the Miami Heat’s 115-91 win in Game One of their playoff series. Forget the previous five watered-down months of NBA basketball. Sunday was the real thing, the kind of day no one needs to be told to come to play. Even this Heat crowd brought their playoff game. Balding chants on the opposing star? Inflammatory tactics with a smidge of creativity? You got the feeling Young didn’t enjoy being so well known this night. he Heat’s defense switched constantly on him, all five Heat players guarding him on a first-half possession. His eight points was his...
    This was what the Miami Heat needed when they needed it, Sunday’s 115-91 victory at FTX Arena. Not to necessarily set a tone in this best-of-seven opening-round NBA playoff series against the Atlanta Hawks. Not to necessarily stomp on an opponent that had survived the play-in round just 39 hours earlier. And not to necessarily validate the offseason makeover that brought in Kyle Lowry and P.J. Tucker among others. But to simply remove the stench of being swept out of the playoffs in last season’s first round by the Milwaukee Bucks and remind again of the possibilities of a franchise that advanced to the 2020 NBA Finals. And what the statement it was, never allowing Trae Young to find his way in a game effectively decided in the first half. “They got swept here last year,” Young said, “so they came out with a different energy.” So on to Tuesday’s Game 2 it is, after getting a career playoff-high 27 points from Duncan Robinson, 21 from Jimmy Butler, 16 from Tucker, as well as nine assists from Lowry and solid...
    Atlanta Hawks guard Trae Young couldn’t have played worse in the Game 1 loss to the Miami Heat on Sunday.  There’s choking in primetime and then there’s what Trae Young did in Game 1 for the Atlanta Hawks going up against the Miami Heat. Despite the Hawks being the No. 8 seed, fans were hopeful that Young would be able to lead the squad to an upset win. The opposite was the case, as Miami cruised to a 115-91 victory. For Young, he had a game to forget and people are blasting him for it on social media.Trae Young was downright terrible in Game 1 vs. MiamiOn Sunday, Young finished with a lowly eight points, going 1-of-12 from the floor.

    To put the Miami Heat’s variety and depth of defenders into perspective, consider that Erik Spoelstra’s team in Sunday’s 115-91 playoff-opening victory at FTX Arena was able to contain Atlanta Hawks guard Trae Young without even utilizing their Young-stopper. Cast in that role during the regular season, as recently as the teams’ meeting a week ago Friday, Caleb Martin this time was reduced to spectator while the game was in the balance, as the Heat instead opened with Kyle Lowry as the initial defender against Young, then moved to Jimmy Butler in that assignment. And even those assignments were fleeting, with the Heat again switching anyone and everyone on to Young when the Hawks attempted to create space for their All-Star guard on the pick-and-roll. Young, coming off a 38-point game in Friday night’s decisive play-in round road victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers, when he scored 32 in the second half, closed with eight points on 1-of-12 shooting. It was his lowest-scoring game of the season. The Heat alleviated the need for Martin’s defense by turning to Butler as the...
    Atlanta Hawks guard Trae Young and Miami Heat star Jimmy Butler had to be separated after the former got in the way of the latter on a fast-break attempt. Butler would’ve had an easy lay-in had Young not gotten in his way just over the halfcourt stripe. Young is a player who is comfortable playing the role of villain. He’s done it so many times before, even as recently as Friday night’s play-in game against the Cleveland Cavaliers. In last year’s postseason, he had New York Knicks and Philadelphia 76ers fans cursing his name up and down the East coast. Against the Miami Heat, that role is in question, as Butler isn’t a player to back down. If anything, Jimmy thrives in a similar environment. Butler is frequently the toughest basketball player in the room. These two alpha-males came to a head early in Game 1, and had to be separated by the lead official.

    MIAMI (CBSMiami/AP) – Miami had two things for practice Saturday that it didn’t have on Friday — an opponent, and a starting center. The Hawks earned their playoff spot by beating Cleveland in a play-in game Friday night, and on Saturday morning Bam Adebayo was back at practice for the first time all week after clearing the NBA’s health and safety protocols. Miami has its big man. Atlanta’s big-man rotation is a major question mark after starting center Clint Capela left Friday’s game late in the second quarter with a hyperextended right knee. And the Hawks are still without fellow big John Collins, who missed the final 16 regular-season games and both play-in contests. READ MORE: Police: 1 Arrested, 1 Sought In Pembroke Pines CarjackingThat said, the Hawks still have Trae Young — one of the most dynamic scorers in the game, someone who had six points at halftime of the win-or-go-home game against Cleveland on Friday, then had 32 more points on 10-of-14 shooting in the final two quarters. “I think he lives for these moments,” Hawks coach Nate...
    Atlanta Hawks star Trae Young is great at playing the villain, and he’s fine with that role. Trae Young knows that people are going to talk about it. Trae Young wants people to talk about it and so Trae Young goes out of his way to get them talking. Young walks a fine line between spontaneous combustion and rehearsed theatrics. He has probably spent hours behind closed doors rehearsing the arson. He thinks he looks good in a dynamite vest. Young orders shenanigans on the regular from ACME — but he almost never bothers with the instructions, at least not in the public arena. Instead, he’s all bashful cockiness. Young clearly understands the world we all live in with its walls and its boundaries. He smiles at it. Then he snarls. Then the snarl becomes a smile, and the smile becomes a snarl. A facial expression from Trae is always enjoying the torment his actions produce. He enjoys being the bad guy, but not because he is inherently evil. After all, he is just playing an antagonist in the...
    Q: Ira, this is exactly what Erik Spoelstra does best, game plan against one player. Bring on Trae Young. — David. A: But it’s easier to game plan against one player when there isn’t a solid supporting cast in place, which the Hawks have with the shooting of Bogdan Bogdanovic, Danilo Gallinari, Keven Huerter and assorted other Atlanta weapons. Actually, the Heat have prided themselves on their elite, one-on-one defenders. So this also could be a case when Jimmy Butler, Kyle Lowry and Caleb Martin will have to step forward, as well as Bam Adebayo on all those switches out to the perimeter. This is not like the more singular challenge the Heat would have had against the Cavaliers’ Darius Garland. So not quite sold that Trae gets the full Jeremy Lin treatment. Q: Ira, we need attacking Kyle Lowry against the Hawks. He has to try to get Trae Young in foul trouble. — Sam. A: Perhaps, but I’m not sure that Kyle Lowry is exactly one to create one-on-one foul trouble. Beyond that, the Hawks are going to...
    (CNN)An explosive second-half performance from Trae Young steered the Atlanta Hawks past the Cleveland Cavaliers, 107-101, and into the NBA playoffs on Friday.Having blown away the Charlotte Hornets in their first play-in game on Wednesday, the Hawks' victory over the Cavaliers saw them clinch the eighth seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs and punch their ticket to face the top-seeded Miami Heat on Sunday.With six points in the first half, Young's slow start reflected that of his team, who trailed 61-51 at the halfway mark. Jeered from the outset by a raucous Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse crowd, Young had the last laugh and then some after exploding for 32 points in the second half, his game-high 38-point haul complemented by nine assists and three rebounds.

    The Atlanta Hawks have clinched the eighth-seed in the Eastern Conference, thanks to an unreal second half performance by Trae Young against the Cleveland Cavaliers. The Atlanta Hawks had the ninth-best record in the Eastern Conference, meaning they had to run the gauntlet that was the play-in tournament to clinch the eighth-seed in the NBA Playoffs. After blowing out the Charlotte Hornets on Apr. 13, the Hawks had to defeat the Cleveland Cavaliers on the road on Friday night. Things looked bleak for the Hawks, but Trae Young went “Ice Trae” in the second half by scoring 32 points to help lead the team to a 107-101 win. Now, Atlanta faces the top-seeded Miami Heat in the first-round.

    The waiting game is over for the Miami Heat. The Atlanta Hawks will be their opponent in the best-of-seven opening-round of the NBA playoffs, starting Sunday at 1 p.m. at FTX Arena. The Hawks secured the No. 8 and final Eastern Conference playoff seed with a 107-101 victory Friday night over the Cleveland Cavaliers at Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse at the close of the play-in round, behind 38 points from Trae Young, including 32 in the second half. The Hawks finished the regular season No. 9 in the East, then won a winner-take-all game Wednesday night against the visiting Charlotte Hornets, who closed the regular season No. 10 in the East. Then came Friday night’s victory over the Cavaliers, who finished the regular season No. 8. The Hawks present more of a challenge than a typical No. 8 seed, when factoring in the scoring of Young, the shooting of Bogdan Bogdanovic, Danilo Gallinari and Kevin Huerter and then the inside force of center Clint Capela, health allowing. The Heat went 3-1 against Atlanta during the regular season. Heat vs. Hawks matchups...

    New York Knicks have found a new public enemy in Atlanta Hawks star Trae Young, who has terrorized New York City once again. Knicks fans run on two things: unending hope that this year is their year, and the rage that follows when this year is ultimately not their year. Usually, it’s helpful when that rage can be directed somewhere, or rather, at someone. Indiana Pacers legend Reggie Miller was New York’s greatest villain in the 1990s, but in the 2020s, New York’s villain hails from Atlanta. After being silenced yet again with a 45-point performance, Knicks fans further crystallize their burning hatred for Trae Young. – 45 PTS– 8 AST– 7 3PT– Nasty crossover Trae Young runs New York. pic.twitter.com/VuYPdkL84K — Bleacher Report (@BleacherReport) March 23, 2022 Knicks Season Opener pic.twitter.com/RkzFM5O1pi — Sidetalk (@sidetalknyc) October 21, 2021 TRAE YOUNG IS STILL NOT VALID IN DYCKMAN ???? pic.twitter.com/OQsNPMLUBz — Sidetalk (@sidetalknyc) October 21, 2021 As New York channels their Knicks passion into furor, Young then takes the insults and jeering hurled his way and fuels his...
    (CNN)Trae Young is public enemy No. 1 amongst New York Knicks fans. When he exploded against the Knicks in the playoffs last season, the young star transformed from just an opposing player to a villain in the Big Apple. The crowning moment was his bow in the center of Madison Square Garden having just eliminated the Knicks from the playoffs. And the two factions reignited their feud on Monday night, with Young having the last laugh. The 23-year-old erupted for 45 points, helping his Atlanta Hawks to a 117-111 win over the Knicks.

Young drives to the basket against the Knicks."Nah, I couldn't really hear them, for real," he told TNT on the court after the win. "It wasn't even that loud, to be honest with you."

    Atlanta Hawks star Trae Young visited Madison Square Garden and put up an historic performance against the New York Knicks. In the opening round of the 2021 NBA Playoffs, New York Knicks fans found their new Reggie Miller in the form of Trae Young. The Atlanta Hawks star ripped apart the hearts of Knicks fans with made shot after made shot and telling the Madison Square Garden crowd to be quiet. On Tuesday night, less than a year later, Young and the Hawks visited New York City again to take on the Knicks, and he continued to torture the team and fanbase. Atlanta pulled out 117-111 victory, thanks in part to 45 points by Young. NBA Twitter could not help but share their thoughts and post memes about Young once again defeating the Knicks on their home court.NBA Twitter reacts to Trae Young dropping Knicks at MSGTrae Young in MSG pic.twitter.com/dB8XEA8mT8 — Josiah Johnson (@KingJosiah54) March 23, 2022 Naaaa Trae chill!! @TheTraeYoung — Donovan Mitchell (@spidadmitchell) March 23, 2022 omg trae ???????? where he going??? @TheTraeYoung — Ja...
    Trae Young again delivered the coup de grace. Silencing the boos with a fantastic showing at his favorite arena, Young dropped 45 points, including the highlight dagger, and essentially cut the final thread to the Knicks’ playoff hopes. Young’s final field goal arrived with one minute remaining, when he sent defender Taj Gibson sprawling to the court with his crossover before burying the jumper. The 117-111 final result put the Knicks (30-42) six games behind the Hawks (36-36) for the final play-in spot with only 10 to play. In other words, it’s safe to purchase those nonrefundable tickets to Cancun. Young, who killed the Knicks in the playoffs last season, played the role Tuesday of travel agent. He nailed seven 3-pointers and added eight assists. “I know how he will be received here (at Madison Square Garden). Trae lives for these moments,” Hawks coach Nate McMillan said. “This type of challenge in his career, he’s faced this a number of times. Probably not as big as playing in Madison Square Garden. But he’ll be fine. I think he looks forward...
    About 10 months after his Broadway Bow, Trae Young has a chance to bury the Knicks again. It’s not the same magnitude of the playoffs, but a defeat to the Hawks on Tuesday sends the Knicks into a hole so deep the play-in tournament can be tossed into the Hudson River. As it stands, the Knicks (30-41) are five games behind the Hawks (35-36) for the final play-in spot with 11 to play. A defeat Tuesday would make it a six-game deficit with 10 games remaining, while also clinching the Knicks a losing record after last season’s surge to the fourth seed. (The Knicks could also mathematically overtake Charlotte or the Nets for a play-in spot, but their clearest path, albeit unlikely, is beating out Atlanta). Young hasn’t played at the Garden since morphing into the supervillain during last year’s playoffs, when the NYC crowd serenaded the point guard with “F— Trae Young” chants. He was in COVID-19 protocols for the Hawks’ first appearance this season on Christmas, which ended with a Knicks win and a Kemba Walker triple-double. Young...
    ATLANTA (AP) — Trae Young scored 21 of his 46 points in the third period and the Atlanta Hawks recovered from a 15-point second-half deficit to beat the Portland Trail Blazers 122-113 on Monday night. Young, who scored 47 points a night earlier in a win over Indiana, added 12 assists against the Blazers. The Hawks (34-34), who entered the game ninth in the Eastern Conference, have won three straight to reach .500 for the first time since Dec. 15, when they were 14-14. De’Andre Hunter scored 20 points for Atlanta, including a 3-pointer to put the Hawks ahead 116-111. Josh Hart led Portland with 31 points. The Blazers began the night 11th in the Western Conference, one spot out of the play-in tournament. Portland led 67-58 at halftime as Atlanta made only 19 of 59 shots (32.3%) from the field, their worst-shooting first half this season. The Blazers made 56.5% (26 of 46) of their shots in the half. Portland scored the first six points of the second half, stretching its lead to 73-58. Young scored the next eight...
    ATLANTA (AP) — Trae Young scored 33 of his 47 points in the first half, and the Atlanta Hawks beat the Indiana Pacers 131-128 on Sunday night. Atlanta, 10th in the Eastern Conference, had seven players score in double figures and shot 54.8% from the field. Danilo Gallinari and De’Andre Hunter had 15 points apiece, and Kevin Huerter finished with 14. The Hawks have won 13 of 15 at home and two straight overall. They had a season-high 77 points in the first half. Tyrese Halliburton and Buddy Hield each scored 25 points for Indiana, which has dropped four of five and 13 of 17. The Pacers, 13th in the East, fell to 8-27 on the road. Young’s 33 first-half points were a career high for either half. He was coming off his NBA-leading 23rd game of at least 25 points and 10 assists in Friday’s win over the Los Angeles Clippers. That’s 10 more than James Harden, the next closest player. He finished with five assists. The Hawks’ biggest lead of the first half was 19 in the...
    Getty Chicago Bulls rookie Ayo Dosunmu guards Trae Young during a February 24 game against the Atlanta Hawks. For as much as will be made of DeMar DeRozan‘s late-game heroics in the Chicago Bulls‘ latest win, make sure to pass credit onto Ayo Dosunmu, who smothered All-Star guard Trae Young on defense all game. And give him credit for his offense, too. The rookie guard finished with 12 points, six rebounds, three assists, and three blocks in the latest career performance for the 22-year old Dosunmu. But it was this play on Young that put the exclamation point on Chicago’s late-game comeback win over Atlanta. Ayo Dosunmu smothered Trae Young in this one, and enabled DeMar DeRozan’s late-game heroics with this block in the final 30 seconds. pic.twitter.com/0YYphzXn29 — Collin Loring (@cologneloring) February 25, 2022 And yes, the NBA did credit this play as Dosunmu’s third block of the night.

    ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — All-Star starter Trae Young had 22 points and six assists and the Atlanta Hawks routed the Orlando Magic 130-109 on Wednesday night in the final game before the break for both teams. Young played only 25 minutes after scoring 41 points in Atlanta’s home victory over Cleveland on Tuesday night. The Hawks made 18 of 32 3-point shots and shot 50% overall. Bogan Bogdanovic led Atlanta with 23 points. Cole Anthony led Orlando with 23 points and seven rebounds. Rookie Jalen Suggs added 19 points in the Magic’s fourth straight loss. Young’s 3-pointer with 6:26 left in the first quarter broke a 15-15 tie and started a 13-2 run that put the Hawks up for good.

    In the wake of the Ben Simmons-James Harden trade, Trae Young’s father knows exactly who caused the chaos.  Is it possible for the biggest winner of the blockbuster Ben Simmons-James Harden trade that the 76res and Nets pulled off on Thursday doesn’t involve any of those actually involved? According to Trae Young’s father, and in the words of my native Minnesotans, you betcha. It took almost no time at all for the discourse to begin within the dust cloud that was kicked up by the massive move. It was both the end of one season of drama and backdoor pilot to another. Simmons, despite the hullabaloo all year long, was finally traded. Harden, in a late addition to the drama, successfully forced his way out of another franchise in consecutive seasons. Daryl Morey, who broke the NBA with a James Harden trade back in 2012, finally got his Thanos-Watching-The-Sunset moment of triumph of doing it again.

    ATLANTA (AP) — Atlanta Hawks All-Star guard Trae Young was scratched from Monday’s lineup with a right shoulder contusion. Coach Nate McMillan said Young was a game-time decision. The Hawks hosted the Raptors on Monday. Young’s injury occurred in the first half of Sunday’s win over the Los Angeles Lakers when he collided with Carmelo Anthony. Young ranks fifth in scoring with a 27.7 average, third in assists with a 9.3 average and fifth in free-throw percentage at 89.5. He had his NBA-leading 12th 30-point, 10-assist game against the Lakers. ___ More AP NBA: https://apnews.com/hub/nba and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports Copyright © 2022 The Associated Press.

    Trae Young scored 30 points and tied a season-high with eight 3-pointers, and the streaky Atlanta Hawks defeated the cold-shooting Charlotte Hornets 113-91 on Sunday night for their fourth straight win. De’Andre Hunter chipped in with 20 points and survived a hard fall late in the game for the Hawks, who led by 27 in the fourth quarter. Miles Bridges and LaMelo Ball each finished with 19 points for the Hornets, who missed their first 19 3-point attempts and shot an abysmal 11.1% (4 of 36) from beyond the arc. Ball and Terry Rozier were a combined 0 for 14 from long distance as Charlotte had its three-game win streak snapped. The Hawks are looking to climb back in the playoff race after a rough stretch of games.

    After leading Atlanta to back-to-back wins for the first time in almost two months, Trae Young wasn't ready to say the Hawks have regained last season's winning formula. It's far too early to talk about a return to the Eastern Conference finals for the Hawks, who are still only 12th in the conference and on the outside of the playoff standings. Young scored 23 of his 37 points in the third quarter, sparking Atlanta's comeback, and the Hawks beat the Minnesota Timberwolves 134-122 on Wednesday night. "I think we’ve just got to keep doing what we’re doing and take it one game at a time and not look too far ahead," Young said, adding the Hawks' focus should be to "try to climb back into this thing."

    (CNN)Trae Young made history and scored a career-high 56 points, but the visiting Atlanta Hawks still fell 136-131 against the Portland Trail Blazers on Monday.Young's total set a new NBA season-high mark, surpassing Kevin Durant's 51-point performance for the Brooklyn Nets on December 12. Young also became the first ever player to score 56 points and dish out 14 assists in a game, according to the NBA. But despite Young's heroics, it was the Blazers, led by Anfernee Simons' career-high 43, who took the win and ended a four-game losing streak. "I don't care about nothing besides the fact we lost, so it sucks I had this type of night on a loss because, at the end of the day, that's all that matters to me,'' said Young. The 23-year-old ended the first half with 29 points, which included draining a three-pointer from the edge of the Blazer's logo with 2.8 seconds remaining in the second quarter.

    Trae Young scored 35 points, Clint Capela had 18 points and a season-high 23 rebounds, and the Atlanta Hawks rallied from a 16-point deficit for a 121-118 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Friday night. Young made a pair of free throws with 7.6 seconds left after Cleveland had pulled within 119-118 on a Brandon Goodwin layup. Kevin Pangos’ potential tying 3-pointer at the buzzer was off the mark. Atlanta snapped a three-game losing streak despite having 12 players in the NBA’s health and safety protocols, including power forward John Collins and sharp-shooters Bogdan Bogdanovic and Kevin Huerter. The Hawks also lost Cam Reddish in the first quarter with a sprained right ankle. "There are only a couple of us from our full roster on this team, but we’re really trying to find ways to win," Young said. "It was a great way to end the year.

    New York Knicks fans weren’t really in the Christmas spirit on Saturday afternoon at Madison Square Garden. During the fourth quarter of New York’s blowout victory over Atlanta at Madison Square Garden, Knicks fans serenaded Atlanta Hawks star Trae Young — despite Young missing the game due to the league’s Covid protocols. “FUCK TRAE YOU-NG!” The crowd chanted. “FUCK TRAE YOU-NG!” The animus between the Knicks faithful and the Atlanta guard dates back to last year’s playoffs, in which the Hawks defeated New York in five games. Young was brilliant in each of the five contests, and egged the crowd on at various points — encouraging them to boo him as he continued to dominate the series. While the dynamic between Young and Knicks fans has mostly been in good fun, one fan went way too far last year and tried to spit on Young. That fan was subsequently banned for like from MSG. The NBA had intended to make Young’s return to the Garden an event — giving it a high-profile showcase on Christmas Day. But...
