Simmons scores Rising Stars win

Utah Jazz guard Donovan Mitchell drives up court in the second half during an NBA basketball game against the Charlotte Hornets in Salt Lake City. Mitchell and Philadelphia 76ers’ Ben Simmons the leading rookie of the yea

Eight of the World's 10 players hit double figures, including 21 from Denver's Jamal Murray, the Canadian MVP of this game last season with 36 points.

Nance, who was trying to win the contest 34 years after his father won it, had earned a ideal 50 with a dunk off a double alley-oop off the glass.

Bogdanovic came up against teammate De'Aaron Fox on the night and couldn't help but engage in some trash talk with his fellow rook.

Star power - It's pretty clear just what an advantage in star power Team World has.

The Team Clippers roster also included Oscar-winning actor and Grammy- winning singer Jamie Foxx, who was scoreless, missing both his shots, and two- time Masters champion Bubba Watson, who scored two points, after shooting a 1- under-par 70 earlier Friday at Riviera Country Club, dropping into a tie for seventh, three strokes off the lead in the PGA Tour's Genesis Open.

"Probably Dennis Smith's missed dunk at the very end", said Los Angeles Lakers forward Kyle Kuzma, who scored 20 points with seven rebounds in his home gym. However, no one in Mitchell's supporting cast can come close to matching the talent Team World has on offer. The Serbian native continued to play for the Turkish team Fenerbahce. "I don't know what it is, but I wanna get that".

DPH says a 47-year-old female from New Castle County died , but records indicate she had not recieved a flu vaccine this season. According to the report , the CDC will continue to investigate the vaccine's effectiveness throughout the rest of the season.

Team USA proved that at least one All-Star weekend tradition remains - and that's scarce defense. "This is my first 40-50 something games, so for me it's kind of scary".

Jazz rookie Donovan Mitchell and 76ers first-year man Ben Simmons have separated from the pack in the NBA's Rookie of the Year race.

The sharpshooter is averaging 11.5 points as a rookie with the Kings this year and has become a vital contributor to their team.

While the battle of rookies and sophomores wasn't much of one, the celebrity game was a much more even contest.

The Rising Stars game hasn't had a double-digit margin of victory since going to the current format, but this year could finally see it happen.

Maybe in a few years, the Kings will have multiple players representing the franchise in the ACTUAL All-Star game? Team World went 23-56 from behind the arc, which ended up being the big difference in the game.
