Midway during the 3rd quarter of the Clippers-Hawks clash, Trae Young shamelessly flopped resulting in a foul call towards Terance Mann.
The Atlanta Hawks grabbed a huge 112-106 win over the Los Angeles Clippers. Once again it was Trae Young who had a huge contribution to ATL’s win. Playing a total of 37:18 minutes, Young went on to record a 27-point, 11-assist double-double on 47.1% shooting from the field.
Despite his game-winning performance, Young received a lot of flak on social media for one of his foul-baiting moves. Midway into the 3rd quarter, Terance Mann charged for a full-court press on Trae. In order to deny the Hawks guard from collecting the ball from Danilo Gallinari, Terance touched the 2-time All-Star and received a foul call.
Here, have a look at the play.

Indeed Twiteratis aren’t all wrong. Such cases of flopping should not be entertained at all.
