Hawks' Trae Young Ejected for Throwing Hard Pass at Referee

In a surprising turn of events, Atlanta Hawks star player Trae Young was ejected from the team's recent win over the Indiana Pacers on Saturday night. The reason? He threw a hard pass directly at one of the referees in frustration.

The incident occurred during the third quarter of the game, with Young clearly upset about a call that didn't go his way. As he approached the referee to argue his case, he suddenly whipped the ball towards him with significant force.

The move didn't go unnoticed by officials, who quickly assessed a technical foul against Young for unsportsmanlike conduct. After reviewing footage of his actions, they decided to eject him from the game altogether.

It was an unexpected turn for both fans and teammates alike, as Young is known for being one of Atlanta's top players and key contributors to their success this season. Nevertheless, it's clear that emotions can sometimes get the best of even seasoned professionals like him.

Following his ejection, Young took to social media to express regret over his actions and apologize to fans. "I'm sorry for letting my emotions get out of hand tonight," he wrote on Twitter. "I love playing this game and I respect all my opponents and officials."

Despite losing one of their star players mid-game, however, Atlanta ultimately came out on top with a final score of 129-117 against Indiana. It will be interesting to see how both teams fare in future matchups – especially if tensions continue running high between them on court.

For now though, many fans are left wondering what exactly prompted such an intense reaction from Young – and whether or not we'll see more displays like this in future games as well.
