Team USA turned Rising Stars into dunking exhibition

Team USA turned Rising Stars into dunking exhibition

US and Boston Celtics forward Jaylen Brown had 35 points while Sacramento Kings and world guard Bogdan Bogdanovich, hitting seven of 13 three-point attempts, was named game MVP.

"I approach every single game the same way", Bogdanovic said.

The Los Angeles Lakers two young forwards Kyle Kuzma and Brandon Ingram combined for 28 points in 31 minutes for the Team USA, after two exhausted back-to-back games in Minneapolis Thursday and Dallas in Wednesday, but they gave their hometown fans something to cheer about.

Simmons will be in the world team for the Rising Stars game featuring other rookie and second-year players.

"You know, it was (an) All-Star Game, so it wasn't like a really competitive game", Hield said. Everybody is showing progress, and the world is showing progress, catching up to American basketball. Jaylen Brown of the Boston Celtics led the way for Team USA with 35 points and 10 rebounds.

Hield, who is from the Bahamas, will be sorry to see the end of his eligibility for this game, in which he scored 28 points last season in New Orleans as a rookie with the Pelicans. "Try to compete to be the best version of myself that day, and it just happened tonight". Star rookie guard De'Aaron Fox needed stitches to his forehead after suffering a scary fall in the Kings' 100-91 road loss to the Houston Rockets. He will also be a part of the Skills Challenge tomorrow, along with Lauri Markkanen, Jamal Murray, and Buddy Hield. "Listen, I have a 7-foot guy playing a two-guard in Kevin Durant so we got a chance".

Maybe in a few years, the Kings will have multiple players representing the franchise in the ACTUAL All-Star game? "I just be like, I already know how to score on y'all, so it's good".

Known for prowess beyond the arc, Markkanen only shot 1 of 4 from 3-point range in 22 minutes of play. John Collins, the powerful finished from the Atlanta Hawks, was the final double-digit scorer with 11.

Utah's Donovan Mitchell and Dallas' Dennis Smith Jr. also warmed up for their participation in Saturday's dunk contest with a couple of nasty slams in the first half.
