Trae Young blocks Mo Bamba's dunk, Bamba and Magic get last laugh


Trae Young is not known for his shot blocking abilities. At barely over 6 feet tall, why would he be? The Atlanta Hawks were taking on the Orlando Magic on Wednesday night and as 7 foot Mo Bamba went up for a dunk, it was Trae Young who came up from behind and was able to swat the ball out of Bamba's hands.

Young and Bamba go way back to early high school days. The two played on AAU teams together attended a Nike camp together. They were also roommates for two straight years during trips to the Bahamas.

So for the foot smaller Atlanta guard, he's going to make sure he rubs in the fact that he got a block on the 7 foot Magic big man.

Although it was a bit of an embarrassing moment for Bamba, he did end up with a double-double, scoring 15 points and grabbing 10 rebounds in just 17 minutes of play. He also added four blocks himself on the night as the Magic were able to grab their second consecutive road win and move a half-game behind the Brooklyn Nets for the 7th seed in the East.

Trae Young got the block, but Mo Bamba gets the last laugh.
