Trae Young, All-Star.
That’s not an honor many second-year players deserve, but Young’s play this season is demanding it. He’s been that good.
Tuesday night he had 42 points, shot 8-of-11 from three, dished out 11 assists, and willed the Hawks to an impressive 125-121 win on the road in Denver.
Young is putting on a show — and he nutmegged Will Barton along the way.
Young is the first Hawks player to have three straight games with at least 30 points and 10 assists. Tuesday night he became just the eighth player in NBA history to have a game with at least 40 points, 10 assists, and eight made threes.
Right now, Tray Young is one of the most entertaining shows in the league. And he should be an All-Star.
