Five other Team World players scored in double figures led by Brandon Clarke's 22 points (11-15 FGs).

In the match, the fans got to see their favorite rising stars, featuring first and second year players in the National Basketball Association, such as Trae Young, Luka Doncic, Zion Williamson and Ja Morant. Miles Bridges was the second Spartan in attendance he was joined by his fellow Charlotte Hornets teammates PJ Washington and Devonte Graham.

Workers were forced to fix one of the rims and backboards at halftime of the game, after Williamson knocked the entire basket off center during a dunk.

"This could be No. 1", Pelicans forward Zion Williamson said, explaining that this was one of the best moments of his life. I didn't have any extra motivation, really, I wouldn't say that.

The event helped kick off the first All-Star weekend in the Windy City since 1988, when Michael Jordan thrilled the home crowd at the old Chicago Stadium. A lot of All-Star players did not know how to do it, let alone the first- and second-year rookies.

"He said I was playing great".

Luka Doncic (L) of Team World and Trae Young (R) of Team USA celebrate together after Doncic burying a back-court 3-pointer in the NBA Rising Stars game at the United Center, February 14, 2020. After he did that, he both he and Young were as excited as kids.

Team World began to play for real from the third quarter by enhancing their defense and focusing on attacking the rim. He had his first leadership, 104-103, from the first minutes of the game. With 23 points, and RJ Barrett of the New York Knicks had 27 points for the World Team. Jackson, to his credit, had 12 points on the night. Between the games, tournaments, stunting Instagram stars, and parties, several National Basketball Association players received an opportunity that is going to be a lasting memory long after their days on the court.

In the celebrity game earlier, Team Wilbon beat Team Stephen A. 62-47.

Team USA's Miles Bridges of the Charlotte Hornets, who had 20 points, five rebounds and five assists, was selected MVP of the game.

The Rising Stars match-up was part of the All-Star Weekend festivities leading up to tonight's game between Team LeBron and Team Giannis, led by Los Angeles' James and Milwaukee's Antetokounmpo.
