Atlanta Hawks rookie Trae Young left Sunday's NBA Summer League game against the Portland Trail Blazers with a right quad contusion, an injury he originally suffered in Saturday's game against the New York Knicks. That's 23.1 percent from the field and 12.5 percent from three-point range. He also shot 7-for-8 from the free-throw line.

Allen and Young were both called for technical fouls after almost fighting each other in the first half of the exhibition game.

With that out of the way, let's cheer up New York Knicks fans who were displeased with the franchise selecting Kevin Knox out of Kentucky with the 9th overall selection last month.

Allen, a first-round draft pick by the Utah Jazz, tripped players a few times in college and it became a topic of national conversation. Young was running around screens and looking for the ball on the play.

Atlanta lost all three of its games in Salt Lake City, to Memphis, San Antonio and Utah, by 15, 22 and 5 points, respectively.

The play occurred just after halftime during a Hawks offensive possession.

NY was led by its last two lottery picks-Kevin Knox (this year's No. 9 overall pick) scored a team-high 19 points on 5-for-15 shooting, while Frank Ntilikina (last year's No. 8 overall pick) finished with 17 points and six assists in the loss.
