WATCH: ‘Logo’ Trae Young makes epic appearance for Hawks in Game 6 vs Sixers
Trae Young was on fire in the first half of Game 6 between the Atlanta Hawks and the Philadelphia 76ers on Friday. The Hawks star scored 20 points in the opening half alone, including a trademark three-pointer from the logo.
Check out how Trae pointed to the Hawks logo after sinking this insane 32-foot triple (h/t ClutchPoints on Twitter):

Young busted out a single crossover over Sixers rookie Tyrese Maxey to create just enough separation. Young had Maxey on skates before pulling up for an audacious attempt from more than 30 feet out. This would have been a bad shot for 99 percent of the rest of the league, but for a guy like Trae Young, this is definitely within his range.
Young and the Hawks are looking to close out this series against the Sixers on their own home floor. They are up 3-2 entering Game 6, and are just one win away from booking their place in the Western Conference Finals. Should there be a need for a Game 7, however, the series will swing back to Philly for that pivotal matchup. Needless to say, Atlanta will want to end this series tonight. Trae Young absolutely knows what’s at stake and he’s been nothing short of tremendous so far.
