The man was among the handful of players who played 71 games in the regular season. He averaged a career-high in almost every department of the game to win that individual recognition.

However, his offense has struggled in the playoffs at a meager 24.1% FG and 30% from the three-point line. The same is the story with shooting guard RJ Barrett, who has been a disaster from downtown in the postseason. If not for Derrick Rose, the Knicks have been very poor in the last week.

The Hawks, on the other hand, are a very balanced team with decent depth. It will be extremely important for the Knicks to somehow limit Trae Young if they want to win the next game. Do you think they’ll be able to do it? Help us know in the comments below.
