Atlanta Hawks point guard Trae Young has been eliminated in the quarterfinal round of the NBA 2K Players Tournament.
Phoenix Suns center Deandre Ayton defeated Young, 73-66, on Thursday night.
Young got off to a slow start, trailing by as many as 13 points in the first half, but stormed back as the game came down to the wire.
Down five with under a minute to go, Young got a clean look at a corner three, but couldn’t connect.
Meanwhile, Ayton sealed the deal on the other end with this Paul George dunk:
During the game, Young honored Kobe and Gianna Bryant with a black hoodie featuring two hearts: one emblazoned with Kobe's numbers: 24 and 8, the other with Gianna's: 2.
Ayton moves on to the semifinals, where he will face the winner of the game between Cleveland Cavaliers center Andre Drummond and LA Clippers point guard Patrick Beverley.
