Preview: Trae Young’s Hawks meet Warriors’ top ranked defense

The Golden State Warriors are fresh off of last night’s 120-107 smackdown of the Houston Rockets, but now a much more dangerous opponent is coming to town. The Atlanta Hawks, last year’s Eastern Conference finalist and the team that maybe ended Ben Simmons career, will be the Dubs’ foe on the second night of a back-to-back.

The Hawks are 4-6 right now and looking to get on track after taking a loss to the Phoenix Suns in their last game. In that game alleged Stephen Curry clone Trae Young scored 31 points with 13 assists, but couldn’t get his team over the hump.

He’ll have to deal with Golden State’s vaunted defense, currently ranked #1 in the NBA in defensive efficiency. Curry is playing arguably the best defense of his career.

But the beauty of the Warriors is they have more than one defender to throw at Young to test his mettle, including Gary Payton II who is wreaking havoc on a nightly basis.
