Trae Young on Okongwu:
“He’s a lot like me in a lot of ways. We’re small but we’re smart. He’s small for his position as a big & undersized, but he’s very smart… He’s going to only get better at his game as years go on, but right now as a base, he’s a very cerebral player.” – 11:01 PM
Trae Young @TheTraeYoung
MLK was back home in Atlanta today !! 🖤 Peace & Love 🖤

With his 30 points against the Bucks tonight, Trae Young took over the NBA scoring lead from the injured Kevin Durant.
Jayson Tatum (27) jumped Steph Curry for 4th.

Trae, on Onyeka Okongwu’s defense:
“He’s a lot like me in a lot of ways. We’re small, but we’re smart. He’s small for his position as a big and undersized, but he’s very smart. He knows angles. He knows that guys when they dunk, they bring it back. He knows to go grab the ball.” – 9:47 PM

Big answer from Bobby Portis. Hits a 3 to match Trae Young’s 3, but Young gets Okongwu a bucket. And the Hawks are up five. – 8:27 PM

#Bucks lead 54-46 with 2:55 to go in the half. They’re doing a good job of not letting Trae Young find a ton of space – he’s got nine points on 4 of 8 shooting. Kevin Huerter is 2-for-10 and John Collins is 2-for-7.
Giannis Antetokounmpo (14) and Khris Middleton (12) lead MKE. – 6:57 PM
Jim Owczarski @JimOwczarski
The #Hawks have started 1-for-12 from behind the three-point line. Trae Young has the one make and seven points.
#Bucks lead 20-12. – 6:29 PM

New story: I talked to Trae Young’s father about his son relishing the villain role.
“He hates when I say this, but he’s got that short-man syndrome, where they’re just mad, and they’re gonna show you that they belong,” @rayfordyoung said.

More on this storyline

What goals did you have for yourself this season? Any accolades or participating in the three-point contest? Seth Curry: I don’t have any individual goals for statistics. I want to be efficient and shoot the ball at a high clip. You brought up the three-point contest. I feel like I’ve got to add one of those to the mantel to be a part of the (Curry) family. Hopefully, I can get one of those before my career is over. Steph (Curry) already has two of them. If I get the invite, I’m going to go to as many as possible, so I can add one to the trophy case. -via HoopsHype / November 18, 2021
