If Young and the Hawks win, they will get a chance to secure the eighth seed in the East on Friday night when they play against the Cleveland Cavaliers.
If they lose, the season is finished and they’ll have to watch the playoffs from home.
Young knows how important the game is and he is finding peace and calm in some inspirational words.
Another Day, Another Opportunity💯

Young tweeted “Another Day, Another Opportunity” on Wednesday morning, just hours before the make-or-break game.
Young has always been one to believe in himself and his team and it sounds like he’s getting in the zone for the major face-off against Charlotte.
It’s been a rough-and-tumble season for the Hawks this year.
Last season ended with them as the fifth seed and their postseason was successful too, with them making it all the way to the Eastern Conference Finals.
This year, they’ve been struggling a lot and were actually out of playoff contention for a while.
They have fought their way into the play-in tournament which means that even if they win, they have a long road ahead of them.
The East is deep this year and there are quite a few teams who could overpower the Hawks and shut them down.
However, Atlanta has surprised basketball fans before and has shown they are more than meets the eye.
They are hoping that Wednesday’s play-in game is another start of a deep playoff run.
If Young has another one of his signature incredible games, there is a good chance he will be in the playoffs by the end of the week.
