Trae Young is known for his ability to shoot from anywhere and he showcased just that in Wednesday's win over the San Antonio Spurs.

With under 10 seconds to go with the game tied at 127, Young got all the space he needed when he pulled up from a few steps over halfcourt.

The Spurs had an open look following a timeout but could not get it to go and the Hawks secured the win.

Young finished with 22 points, shooting 8-for-18 (44.4 percent) from the field and 4-for-8 (50.0 percent) from beyond the arc. The rookie point guard also tallied seven assists, three rebounds and two steals in the victory. He came up clutch, too, scoring seven points in the last 2:45 of back-and-forth one possession basketball.

Young is averaging 16.0 points and 5.5 assists through his first four preseason contests. He's 22-for-57 (38.6 percent) from the field and 8-for-24 (33.3 percent) from long range through those four games.

The Hawks open the regular season against the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden on Wednesday, Oct. 17.
