Trae Young had incredible games in his maiden appearance in the postseason for the Atlanta Hawks as Nate McMillan’s team closed the series against the Knicks in the MSG.

After beating the Knicks, Young took to Twitter to taunt the NY fan base with three words as he dropped a game-high 36 points in Game 5 win.

Young demolished the tough Knicks’ defense, averaging 29.2 points and 9.8 assists in his first five playoff games of his career.

He was at the top of his game during the three matchups in MSG, where Young went off to average 32.7 points and 8.7 assists shooting 45 percent from the field and 38 percent from deep.

The Hawks are set to face the Philadelphia 76ers in the second round of the Eastern Conference playoffs.
