Points scored at San Antonio on Dec. 12. Nick Young shot 9-for-14 against the Spurs and hit six 3-pointers, including the game-winning 30-footer in overtime.
36.6: Percentage shot by Young from the field. The 29-year-old hit the lowest shooting mark of his career, averaging 4.1 baskets on 11.3 attempts.
1,000: Minutes played by Young. The Los Angeles native spent the least amount of time on the court of his career, falling 158 minutes shy of his previous low set as a rookie in 2007-08.

Young started off his season solidly by shooting 40.1 percent through December. However, the sixth man slipped into a free fall once the calendar flipped to 2015, hitting just 32.2 percent from the field and 28.6 percent on 3-pointers in the new year. Young was hampered by various injuries throughout the season, playing in just 42 games before being sidelined for the year due to a fractured left kneecap suffered on Feb. 22. Despite struggling with his shots from the field, Young excelled at the free throw line, hitting 89.2 percent (132-for-148) of his foul shots, which placed seventh in the NBA.

“This year was obviously a tough year. It started off with injuries and (Was) just not the way we wanted things to go. You gotta still stay focused and look forward to what’s ahead.”
