  • Young compiled 11 points (5-10 FG, 1-2 3Pt), 14 rebounds, three assists and one block across 39 minutes in Thursday's 119-114 loss to the Cavaliers in Game 3 of the series. Young outperformed his counterpart at power forward, Kevin Love (13 points, six boards in 27 minutes), but with LeBron James (41 points, 13 rebounds, 12 assists) going supernova for the Cavaliers, the Pacers fell into a 3-0 series hole. Coach Nate McMillan has shortened his bench through each of the first three games of the series and that's unlikely to change in Game 4 on Sunday, so expect Young to see another 35-plus-minute workload.

  • Young scored 16 points (7-11 FG, 2-6 FT) with six steals, three rebounds and one assist across 33 minutes in Monday's 117-111 Game 2 loss to the Cavs. Young's six steals tied the season-high that he achieved on three previous occasions this year, and set a new benchmark in the category through the first three days of the postseason. Young has been efficient scoring the ball through the Pacers' first two playoff games, shooting 66.7 percent from the field, but he could stand to be more aggressive on offense as he's only averaging 7.5 shot attempts per game.

  • Young had 20 points (10-15 FG), eight rebounds, three assists, and one steal in 33 minutes during Monday's 120-111 win over the 76ers. Young has scored in double figures during eight straight contests, this after failing to do so in 11 of the first 16 games following the All-Star break. Al Jefferson (ankle) has missed these last eight bouts, and Young has seen 31.8 minutes per night during Jefferson's absence. Jefferson has reportedly been cleared to play since last Thursday, but he has remained out nonetheless. Young and the Pacers need a win on Wednesday versus the Hawks in order to guarantee their place in the postseason.

  • Young collected 12 points (6-13 FG, 0-1 3Pt), 11 rebounds, three assists and one steal across 35 minutes during Thursday's 104-89 victory over the Bucks. Young has taken on an expanded role for the Pacers since March 28, the first game that Al Jefferson (ankle) missed due to injury. During the five games leading up to Thursday in that stretch, Young averaged 15.2 points and 9.2 rebounds per game compared to his season averages of 10.8 points and 5.9 rebounds per game. Owners in year-long formats are likely pleased with Young's uptick in production, considering he's seen a dropoff from last season, and DFS players could probably benefit by keeping an eye on Al Jefferson's health moving forward.

  • Young scored 15 points (7-15 FG, 1-1 FT) while adding 11 rebounds and two steals in 33 minutes during Tuesday's 108-90 win over the Raptors. He's scored in double digits in five straight games, averaging 15.2 points and 9.0 boards over that stretch. With the Pacers currently clinging to the eighth seed in the Eastern Conference, they'll need Young to continue producing like he did for the Nets last season if they're going to make it to the playoffs.
