Trae Young is absolutely feeling it for the Atlanta Hawks right now. In the first half of Game 6 of the conference semifinals against the Philadelphia 76ers, Young netted 20 points and seven assists — his 11th straight postseason game hitting those marks, tying a NBA record for the longest streak.
Oh, and he also ended the first half with an absolutely brutal logo shot that you have to see.
On one of the Hawks last major possessions of the first half, Young crossed up Tyrese Maxey at the Atlanta midcourt logo then pulled up for a dagger of a shot that hit net and went in. It’s a gorgeous shot and an absolute flex from Young, who has been on his A-game all series long.

The official NBA scorers marked that shot as a 35-footer in the books too, solidifying it as one of the best we’ve seen in these playoffs thus far.
And of course, basketball fans were in disbelief and in awe at what they just witnessed.
Trae Young, that was disrespectful.

Young is an absolute gamer, and what a shot to cap off a ridiculous first half too.
