Luka Doncic and Trae Young have a history as they were traded for each other on the night of the 2018 NBA draft. Since then, both have become top line players in the league. On Wednesday they will face off against each other for the seventh time in their careers.

Doncic and the Mavericks are ahead of Young and the Hawks after winning four of their previous six encounters, but anything could happen in this upcoming neck-and-neck race.

The Mavs suffered a 140-123 loss to the Trail Blazers in Portland, a poor defensive showing that left Doncic rested. Luka was averaging a season-low 15 points in 35 minutes, well below his league leader of 33.8 points per game.

On the other hand, the Hawks scored their third straight win with a 121-113 win over the Miami Heat to push their way back to .500 (22-22).

Trae Young had 24 points alongside a season-high four steals but hit a career-high 10 turnovers.
