But as Young got settled for his first 3-point attempt, Tatum let if fly from beyond half-court to steal the victory.

Tatum's path to the final saw him knock out Kyle Kuzma in the opening round before getting the better of Denver Nuggets big man Nikola Jokic.

Young eliminated De'Aaron Fox in the first round with a deep 3-point heave off one leg before showing he meant business in his win over Luka Doncic.
