The Atlanta Hawks (27-48) rookie point guard Trae Young posted 33 points (12/24 FG, 5/13 3PT, 4/5 FT), grabbed one rebound and dished out 12 assists in the Hawks’ 130-120 road victory over the Anthony Davis and Jrue Holiday-less New Orleans Pelicans (31-45) at Smoothie King Center on Tuesday night.

Young recorded his 24th double-double of the season.

“I’m feeling good, and my teammates honestly make me look good, too. I’m just having fun. That’s the main thing. The ball is moving, shots are falling and it’s fun,” Young said, per USA Today.

On the other hand, Julius Randle finished with 24 points, five assists and nine boards for the Pelicans.
