The summer of Trae Young saw clutch shot after clutch shot from the Atlanta Hawks guard, including this one against the Philadelphia 76ers.
The Hawks were shockingly up 3-2 in the series against the number 1 seeded Sixers, but were down late in the 4th. With Tyrese Maxey clinging to Young like glue, Trae had to put on multiple moves before settling for a stepback at the shot clock buzzer. Young roared along with the hometown State Farm Arena crowd as the trifecta cut the Philly lead to 1 with 2 minutes left. As the 76ers were inbounding following this clutch 3, darkness fell across the arena with the lights inexplicably shutting off. Young literally shot the lights out, with the only illumination coming from the Hawks fans flashing phones.
Young rocked his signature adidas Trae Young 1 sneaker this game, which he debuted in the 2021 NBA Playoffs.
There isn’t tech info or release info for the shoes at the time of writing, but you can find his “Ice Trae” colorway worn in this game posted over at GOAT.
