Video: Trevor Ariza, Trae Young hug it out after heated moment
Portland Trail Blazers small forward Trevor Ariza and Atlanta Hawks point guard Trae Young showed us on Saturday that it’s all love and games when the game is over, even if things get heated during the 48 minutes of game-time.
Ariza hip checked Young after the Hawks’ All-Star point guard tried to nutmeg him. The 34-year-old veteran was called for a flagrant foul after hip checking Young, but the two were all smiles after the game:

This is what sports is all about. Fierce competition is made for in between the lines. However, once the game ends, it’s back to treating each other like brothers.
Atlanta defeated Portland by a final score of 129-117. Young played 35 minutes and put up 25 points, four rebounds and 15 assists, continuing to establish himself as one of the best point guards in the NBA despite only being a second-year pro with the Hawks.
The Hawks are now 19-43 on the season, while the Blazers dropped to 26-35. Portland superstar guard Damian Lillard is still on the shelf because of his groin injury.
