After the Miami Heat came back to defeat the Atlanta Hawks in their last meeting in December, Jimmy Butler trolled Trae Young on social media, making fun of the 21-year-old for thinking he'd put the game away.

This time, Young took a jab at Butler after dropping a career-high 50 points on Tuesday in the Hawks' 129-124 victory.

With Atlanta trailing by seven heading into the final frame, Young caught fire, scoring 20 points on 6-of-12 shooting - including three triples - in the fourth quarter.

"He just got into such an incredible rhythm," said Heat head coach Erik Spoelstra postgame, according to The Associated Press. "He's pulling up from six feet behind the line. ... There's not a lot of things you can do about that."

The All-Star guard is second in the NBA in scoring (30.1 points per game) and assists (9.2).

Meanwhile, Butler posted 17 points, nine assists, and eight boards to finish just short of a triple-double.

It was the final meeting of the season between the two clubs. Miami had won all three previous matchups leading up to Thursday's tilt.
