In his NBA debut, Atlanta's Trae Young had 14 points on 5-for-14 shooting and five assists in 33 minutes during the Hawks' 19-point loss. "Made a few turnovers that I wasn't making in the preseason. I could have played a lot better," said Young, who had four turnovers. "But that's going to happen. I'm going to continue to grow."

The Knicks set a franchise record with 49 points in the second quarter. It will be interesting to see how Lloyd Pierce's Hawks respond to start the second half.

Funny moment: Trae Young has the ball when Atlanta calls timeout and Tim Hardaway Jr. won't allow to take a shot before he walks off the floor. Young is 1-for-4 and Atlanta has been outscored by 15 when he's on the court.

Nice ovation at Madison Square Garden for 41-year-old Vince Carter, who is starting tonight for the Atlanta Hawks.

Funny line from Hawks coach Lloyd Pierce on what he's looking for from Jeremy Lin, who missed nearly all of last year w/a knee injury: "I'm looking to recreate Linsanity tonight," Pierce jokes. "We're looking to get that going right now." Lin and the Hawks open the season against the Knicks at Madison Square Garden - birthplace of Linsanity in 2012 - tonight

Trae Young may have been a star in college, but he's not above the NBA's rookie hazing norms. Young was wearing a pink backpack as he walked out of Madison Square Garden following shootaround.
