On Friday during their pre-game warm-ups, Young showed everyone that his shooting and stroke are on point with a crazy trick shot. While sitting on the bench, the Hawks sharpshooter effortlessly launched a rocket that smoothly swished the net–and that is after trying to play with another ball.

After the boos he received in Game 2 in Madison Square Garden and the spitting incident with a Knicks fan, Trae Young is certainly more motivated than ever to win and prove to everyone that he won't let the disrespect slip.
In the 101-92 loss to the Knicks the last time out, Young finished with 30 points and seven assists. It came on 11-of-20 shooting from the field–4-of-7 from deep–in what could be said as an efficient performance for him.
Given the way he has played so far, Young could very well have another big game. It will surely help that he's playing in front of their home fans, who are expected to rally them and annoy the hell out of the Knicks.
Pre-game or during the contest itself, Hawks fans can expect Young to drop ridiculous shots and more.
