Trae Young made his NBA Playoff debut on Sunday night in front of just about the biggest crowd we've seen since the start of the pandemic. Young hit the game-winner with 0.9 seconds remaining. After hitting the last shot that put the Atlanta Hawks on top, 107-105, Young shushed the MSG crowd. Not that he needed to say anything at that point.

Young was then interviewed on TNT and said that he was happy to hear "F-U chants."

Overall it was an A+ postseason debut for Young. His team won. He hit the game-winner. He had 32 on 23 shots to go along with 10 assists and 7 rebounds. And he only took three three-pointers despite the fact that he averaged 6.3 this season and 7.1 over his three year career.
