After pushing the Atlanta Hawks through the first two rounds of the postseason, Trae Young showed no signs of slowing down in the opening game of the Eastern Conference Finals.

Young came out firing, tallying 25 points on 11-of-16 shooting from the floor with four assists and four boards in the opening half against the Milwaukee Bucks. The former Oklahoma Sooner stayed hot in the second half on the way to a fiery 48 points performance on 17-of-34 shooting from the field. Young added 11 dimes, seven rebounds and a steal in 41 minutes.

The 22-year-old guard provided a highlight in the third quarter with a shimmy 3-pointer. Young drilled a wide open triple after taking a second to shimmy.
