Atlanta Hawks rising star Trae Young had another explosion on Sunday night, as he casually dropped 31 points against the Los Angeles Lakers. Prior to the contest, Lakers head coach Frank Vogel did appear to provide a bit of a foreshadowing of things to come when he described how difficult he expects things are going to be, as his team attempts to contain a surging Young in their upcoming matchup. True enough, Young was indeed able to torch the Lakers' much-improved defense, with the sophomore going 11-of-22 from the field en route to his team-high 31-point performance. Young did turn the ball over eight times, though, which goes to show that it's not as if L.A.'s defense on him was all that bad.
