Zach LaVine and Trae Young teamed up to drop 50 points and 42 points, respectively, when the Atlanta Hawks took down the Chicago Bulls on Friday—helping one bettor earn a massive payday in the process. 

A FanDuel gambler placed a $50 single-game parlay on LaVine and Young to each go over 40 points scored at +89,686 (bet $100 to win $89,686), picking up a nearly $45,000 payout.

LaVine nearly reached the 40-point mark in the first half alone, finishing with 39 points before the break—including 25 straight points for the Bulls in the second quarter. Young came on a bit stronger in the second half and helped the bet cash. 

Getting a shoutout from the player who helps you earn a $45,000 payday is an added bonus from an already huge win.
