Simmons scores Rising Stars win

Domas Sabonis will play for the World team in the Rising Stars game. AP

The exhibition was formerly known as the Rookies vs. Sophomores game which puts together the best up and coming talent from the U.S. as well as the best young worldwide talent around the league.

"Bruno is a great player", said Splitter, who was working the Rising Stars game Friday for the NBA's Brazilian broadcast team. "The world is showing progress, catching up to American basketball", Hield of Bahamas said.

After getting to sleep, Murray woke right back up at 7 a.m., had a morning practice with the World Team, helped coach kids for a Jr. "I could rave a lot more about him".

Added to the intrigue of Team LeBron is the presence of Kyrie Irving, the Boston Celtics' point guard who requested a trade out of Cleveland to get out from James' shadow. Following him in the scoring column was Kyle Kuzma (20) and Jayson Tatum (15), who also got in on the dunk fest when he threw down an extraordinary fastbreak windmill. Then he hit a 3-pointer. He's averaging 13.2 points, 3.2 rebounds, 4.3 assists, and two made threes per game in his last 24 outings and has also been in the team's starting lineup for the past month.

The Kings rookie went on to win MVP honours for a team-high 26 points to go along with seven three-pointers, six assists and four rebounds. "I'm going to go with Jason Williams, 'White Chocolate, '" she said.

They topped another Sacramento teammate, De'Aaron Fox, on the U.S. Team.

"It's obviously one of those things that I wanted to be in it, but it didn't happen and we move on".

The game was full of alley-oops and three-pointers while defence was nearly non-existent, a norm for such games.

There have been few players better suited to be "here" - at All-Star Weekend.

Celebrating this year's game with a Los Angeles theme, the teams will be dubbed Lakers and Clippers. "Not only can he be the best big in the league, he can be one of the best bigs to ever play the game, just because he is so talented". You've got bigs that really spread the floor, and it allows the small guys to spread the paint. Got a couple dunks at the end.

It's Joel Embiid's world and we're just living in it.

This year, for the first time, players had an opportunity to score four points by shooting from the Ruffles logo, just beyond the three-point line. John Collins, the powerful finished from the Atlanta Hawks, was the final double-digit scorer with 11.

Donovan Mitchell of the Utah Jazz will be participating in the dunk contest, but that didn't stop him from giving the fans a little taste of what's to come.
