VIDEO: Trae Young, Bogdan Bogdanovic figure in epic Shaqtin’ a Fool fail
Atlanta Hawks guards Trae Young and Bogdan Bogdanovic usually display their seamless chemistry when they’re on the floor. But against the Portland Trail Blazers on Monday, the two teamed up for an epic Shaqtin’ A Fool moment.
Young was looking to find Bogdanovic for a wide-open transition three-pointer. The latter’s legs, however, suddenly turned into spaghetti, causing him to tumble to the ground. To make things worse, the ball was already up in the air before eventually hitting him right in the face.

Fortunately for the Hawks, they snagged the victory over the Trail Blazers, 123-114. Bogdanovic finished with 25 points while Young had 21 points and 12 assists. Danilo Gallinari was the high-man for the Hawks with 28 markers.
Yes, it was a bad possession. But overall, the Hawks have been doing well this year. They now have a 36-30 record for fifth place in the Eastern Conference. They’re not out of the woods yet though as the team standings are pretty tight.
If they’re not careful, just like Trae Young and Bogan Bogdanovic in their errant play, they could slip to the seventh spot and participate in the play-in tournament. But whatever ends up happening to the Hawks, their fans must be delighted to see them playing extremely well.
