Dropping 31 points on 9 three-pointers, Trent Jr was absolutely clinical in the Raptors’ 106-100 win over the Atlanta Hawks.

Clearly, the Raptors got the better of the Gary Trent Jr-Normal Powell trade. In the 39 games he has suited up for the Canadian team this season, Trent Jr has been averaging a solid 17.8 points, 2.8 rebounds, 2 assists, and 1.9 steals per game.

Currently, in the midst of the best week of his career, the 6-foot-5 guard has been dropping several 30-bombs. During the Raptors-Hawks clash, the 23-year-old continued his impressive performance, dropping 31 points, grabbing 6 rebounds, while knocking down 9 shots (career-high) from beyond the arc.

The former Duke Blue Devil now has 4 consecutive games with 30+ points and 5+ threes. The only other players to have longer streaks are Stephen Curry, Damian Lillard, and James Harden. Without a doubt, it is some elite company the swingman is a part of.
