Young made it look like he was going to use the pick set by teammate Alex Len to get an open look. Richardson was ready to go through the screen when the sophomore guard decided to cross him over and hit an uncontested 3-pointer.
The Hawks lead the Sixers 65-63 at the end of the first half. Young has 19 points, two rebounds, and five assists. If he continues to score at this pace, he’ll be able to reach 30 points for the third time this season.
Prior to the start of their 2019-20 campaign, Young has made a bold statement that the Hawks will surprise a lot of people this year, and he’s right. A lot of people are amazed by how well they’re playing so far.
