NBA All-Star Friday night: Canadians not named Bieber win big

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

His confidence was oozing and he even channeled his inner-Stephen Curry with a three-pointer from long range. I'm proud to see a lot of guys around the world from France, Australia, you have (Joel) Embiid from Cameroon.

Hield scored 29 points with five 3-pointers, and his Sacramento Kings teammate won the MVP award with 26 points and seven 3-pointers in the World team's 155-124 victory over the US team in the Rising Stars Challenge on Friday night.

Rex Kalamian, the Toronto Raptors assistant who coached Team World, praised the play of Denver Nuggets Canadian guard Jamal Murray, who had 21 points and seven assists for Team World. Jaylen Brown of the Boston Celtics led the way for Team USA with 35 points and 10 rebounds. 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.

Fox was able to get 16 minutes of action as he recorded four points, two rebounds, and two assists for the night.

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.

"So what?" - Labour members react to The Sun's "Commie Corbyn" splash
Jeremy Corbyn has dismissed claims that he met and briefed a Czech spy during the Cold War years as a "ridiculous smear". Accordingly, Corbyn says that he had no reason to believe that the men he was meeting with were communist spies.

As for the box score for Bogdanovic and Hield, Bogi recorded 26 points and six assists while Hield finished the night with 29 points. De'Aaron Fox and Taurean Prince have come in to take their place on the team.

A third Laker was also voted into the game, rookie guard Lonzo Ball, but he was unable to play due to injury.

It felt like a three point contest throughout the entire game, as there were 96 combined three point attempts. Of course, there will be other factors at play like effort levels (especially on defense) and playing time (actual All-Star Embiid might not get too many).

Utah Jazz rookie sensation Donovan Mitchell gave us an early preview of the dunk contest tomorrow by throwing an ally-oop pass to himself off the backboard in the first half. "I just kept shooting, and it felt good".

Bogdan Bogdanovic is shooting 40.0 percent from 3-point range and teammate Buddy Hield is at 42.5 percent, 14th best in the National Basketball Association.
