It’s no secret that Atlanta Hawks guard Trae Young likes to fire the long ball from deeper than most, and he got hot from the parking lot against the Boston Celtics Monday. The second-year star hit a pair of 3-pointers from the logo in the first quarter of the contest and has 17 points midway through the second quarter, despite being listed as questionable with an ankle injury leading up to the contest. Boston is undermanned at point guard with Kemba Walker and Marcus Smart out, and Young has taken advantage.
