Yet another Trae Young highlight? Sure, we've grown accustomed to Young stealing souls against just about every NBA team, but on Monday night he somehow one-upped himself, dribbling around Michael Porter Jr like a contortionist. Young, who has yet to prove he isn't a part-time magician, crossed up the Nuggets only to then dribble the ball between his own legs at full-speed, leading to a Hawks lay-up.
Porter Jr.'s mistake was switching on to Young in the first place. That's no place for a small child.
Atlanta's season hasn't gone according to plan in 2019-20, despite their rumored interest in Andre Drummond. However, Young's strong play continues to inspire hope in Atlanta.
