The Atlanta Hawks young trio of Trae Young, John Collins and Kevin Huerter became the first trio of teammates in NBA history, age-22 or younger, to each record a 20-point double-double.

Young finished with 36 points and 10 assists, Collins finished with 22 points and 10 rebounds and Huerter finished with 23 points and 15 rebounds.

Huerter just missed a triple-double, as he fell two assists short.

The rebounds (15) and assists (8) were both career-highs for Huerter and it was his second career double-double.

Young scored 21 of his 36 points in the fourth quarter alone and helped the Hawks pull away to beat the Phoenix Suns 123-110.

The win by the Hawks snapped a four-game losing streak.
