Watch Trae Young Sink Game-Winning Floater to Beat Jimmy Butler, 76ers

Megan ArmstrongContributor IIIMarch 24, 2019

Trae Young got the last laugh against Joel Embiid in the paint on Saturday night as the rookie point guard's floater buoyed the Atlanta Hawks to victory over the Philadelphia 76ers. 

With three seconds remaining and the game tied at 127, Hawks guard Kevin Huerter inbounded the ball to Young, who drove into the lane against 76ers guard Jimmy Butler and Embiid. After the ball went through the net to give the Hawks a 129-127 lead with 0.1 seconds left, the home crowd went wild. 

Young pounded his chest and said, "It's over." 

While the 26-48 Hawks' season is coming to an end, Young provides hope that it's just the beginning for what this franchise can become. The 47-26 76ers, meanwhile, are jockeying for position in the Eastern Conference playoffs. 

Atlanta will next play the New Orleans Pelicans on Tuesday, and Philadelphia will visit the Orlando Magic on Monday.
