What these Numbers Say

The Hawks value and emphasize Trae Young’s ability to score in transition and out of the pick and roll. The drag and step up screen can both be used in the half court setting. This is why they utilize these actions 63% of the time. It gives Trae Young a scoring advantage through mismatches but since he’s not a finish at the rim athlete, he uses the floater to be more effective. When the defense plays off of him, or uses drop coverage, we see him rely on his shooting abilities making up that 8/30 or 26% from isolation or three.
