Atlanta Hawks second-year point guard Trae Young started the 2019-20 season with a bang.

Young scored 16 points and dished out five assists on 6-of-9 shooting from the field and 3-of-4 from beyond the arc in the first 10 minutes of the Hawks’ opener against the Detroit Pistons, capped by this 3-pointer from the logo:

The Hawks haven’t made the playoffs since 2017. In a wide-open Eastern Conference, Trae Young and Atlanta are eager to prove the world wrong and make a postseason run.

Young averaged 19.1 points, 3.7 rebounds and 8.1 assists as a rookie while shooting 41.8 percent from the field, 32.4 percent from beyond the arc and 82.9 percent from the free-throw line.
