Can Trae Young’s breakout performance against the defending champions spark the Atlanta Hawks?

Trae Young led the Atlanta Hawks to a much-needed victory over the defending champion Milwaukee Bucks with his red hot shooting as he scored 42 points to go along with 10 assists and eight rebounds as he went 8-13 from behind the arc good for 61.5 percent.

If the Hawks want to continue to win, they will need Young to keep playing at this elite level as they have the potential to be a top team in the Eastern Conference as we saw during last season’s playoff run.

According to ESPN Stats and Info, Young joined elite company as he recorded his 17th 40-point game as he tied Kevin Durant and LeBron James for 3rd most by a player in his 1st 4 seasons since the 1976-77 NBA-ABA merger. Young’s basketball IQ is highly underrated by opponents and when combined with his skill set, he can freeze defenses on any given night.
