Trevor Ariza isn’t getting nutmegged by Trae Young, picks up flagrant with check

0 Comments

Trae Young is a walking highlight reel, hitting deep threes and sometimes nutmegging defendersdribbling between guy’s legs — on his way to the rim.

Trevor Ariza is a proud player and defender, he was not getting added to Young’s nutmeg list. And he was physical in shutting it down.

Ariza was given a flagrant 1 for the play.

Which may be fair, but Ariza will take it. He was sending a message. That’s a professional foul, a hard one but with intent.

Young had 25 points in a 129-117 Hawks win at home.
