Mike Budenholzer is smiling.
Feels too much like one of those bad Rookie-Sophomore games to me.
Teams combined for an all-time All-Star record of 318 points last year. At this rate, 333 points tonight.
Ball movement a little better when Mike Budenholzer is coaching the Hawks.
With that dunk contest performance, Zach LaVine totally stole the spotlight away from Patrick Beverley.
OK, Zach LaVine didn't save the best for last.
Vince Carter 2000 or Zach LaVine 2015? Starting to become a legit debate.
Two of the best contest dunks this century back-to-back.
What a dunk contest.
Zach LaVine still the favorite?
Can only see Giannis Antetokounmpo advancing if he dunks on Angela Merkel on his next attempt. That would get 50 points in Greece.
Stephen Curry has the best combination of talent and relatability since (blank).
Stephen Curry wins a fantastic three-point shootout. Dunk contest surely won't be better than this.
Impressive Stephen Curry with 27 points. Odds of Klay Thompson beating that mark?
Patrick Beverley was playing in Russia 26 months ago. He's a Skills Challenge contest winner now.
Best Skills Challenge contest ever.
From the "What the hell?" department: Antonio Davis and Allan Houston took part in the 1994 slam dunk contest.
Giannis Antetokounmpo came close to getting the first flagrant foul in Rising Stars game history, I assume. Even here, he cares.
Prediction: World wins. MVP: Greek Freak.
Can't miss All-Star prediction: Dunk contest will be better than last year.
