Wizards looking to contain Hawks' Young again

Washington will attempt to duplicate its earlier defensive effort against high-scoring Atlanta guard Trae Young when the Wizards visit the Hawks on Saturday night.

The Wizards found a way to slow Young in the first meeting between the two teams on Jan. 10 in Washington. Two nights after Young had gone for 42 points and a triple-double in a loss to the Houston Rockets, the Wizards held him to 19 and saw him go 0-for-7 on 3-point attempts. The Wizards won that game 111-101.

"Most of his shots come from 3s," said Washington guard Gary Payton II, who drew the defensive assignment. "That's how he gets going. We just tried to limit his 3s and make him take deep 3s. That's what we did."
