Hawks rookie Trae Young scores 35 points in win vs. Cavaliers

​Trae Young has already made a lasting impression just three games into his career.

The Hawks rookie had a historic outing in Sunday’s 133-111 win over the Cavaliers as he put up the biggest numbers by a first-year player since Warriors star Stephen Curry in 2010.

Young, who went 13 of 23 from the floor, finished with 35 points to go with 11 assists, becoming one of 11 rookies to achieve the impressive stat line. Others to accomplished the feat include LeBron James, Jason Kidd, Michael Jordan, Oscar Robertson and Jerry West.

“I’m excited just to, first off, get the win,” Young said after the game. “I’m excited the way I played and the way my teammates helped me around the whole game.

“I just got a good rhythm early.”

Young, who turned 20 last month, was selected out of Oklahoma by the Mavericks with the No. 5 pick of the 2018 draft then traded to the Hawks with a protected future first round pick in exchange for the rights to third-overall pick Luka Donic.

Atlanta (1-2) will next host Dallas (1-1) at 7 p.m. ET Wednesday.
