After appearing in his first career All-Star game, Atlanta Hawks star Trae Young has continued his rapid ascension coming out of the break.
Trae Young started in the 2020 NBA All-Star game, many griped about it because it was fans who voted him in, and his team currently resides in the bottom-five in the association. However, Young did not let the criticism dissuade him from putting on a show, as he swished an impressive heave from far beyond the arc, 40-feet to be exact.
Like many rising stars from the past, Young is using his success from All-Star weekend as a springboard. In his first game after the break, he registered a new career-high, scoring an efficient 50 points. In his follow-up performance, Young posted half that scoring total, 25.
Young led the Hawks to wins in both contests, earning victories over the Heat and Mavericks.
