When listing the best young duos in the NBA, you'd be hard-pressed to find any with more upside than the Atlanta Hawks' tandem of 20-year-old Trae Young and 21-year-old John Collins and the Sacramento Kings' 21-year-old guard De'Aaron Fox and 19-year-old rookie Marvin Bagley III.

Their talent will be on full display Wednesday at 10:30 p.m. ET in our NBA League Pass Game of the Night.

This season, Fox is averaging 17.6 points and 7.2 assists per game while Bagley is putting up 12.8 points and grabbing 6.4 rebounds per contest. Collins, the Hawks' leading scorer, averages 19.5 points and 10.0 rebounds in just 30 minutes per game and Young is averaging 16.4 points and 7.3 assists per game.

In the first meeting between Atlanta and Sacramento, Collins sat with an ankle injury while Fox recorded his first career triple-double to lead the Kings to a 146-115 win.

Now, with Collins back in the lineup, Wednesday's meeting should be full of excitement, considering these young players are capable of plays like this...

...this...

...and this:

It's not just these duos, either - a total of 11 Kings players are 25-years-old or younger while the Hawks have 12 such players. It's no coincidence that Atlanta plays at the league's fastest pace (105.07) and Sacramento is right behind them (104.11).

The Hawks, who are coming off of an impressive road win against the LA Clippers, have a young core that features DeAndre' Bembry and Taurean Prince, as well as rookies Kevin Huerter and Omari Spellman.

The Kings are just 2.5 games out of the West's final playoff spot and have relied heavily on the young talents of Bogdan Bogdanovic, Buddy Hield and Willie Cauley-Stein this season.

Tune in to NBA League Pass Wednesday night for an up-and-down matchup that should provide plenty of highlights and an abundance of scoring.
