World Domination Hits Staples Center

Team World Buddy Hield

Team World hits 23 threes as Buddy Hield scores 29 against Team USA. 

The NBA All-Star Weekend is here and among the activities that fans are looking forward to every single year is none other than the Rising Stars Challenge, game which puts some of the league's best rookies and sophomores against each other in an entertaining showcase of talents by some of the NBA's future stars. And this year's edition of the Rising Stars Challenge can be certainly regarded as one of the most exciting ones in recent history.

It's Team USA versus Team World. However, Team World made everyone remember that there are many talented young basketball players around the world, too, aside from those who are from the United States as Team World dominated Team USA, 155-124. Buddy Hield led the way with 29 points while Jamal Murray added 21 points but it was Bogdan Bogdanovic who took home the MVP award as he scored 26 points in only 22 minutes of action.

Just how dominant Team World was this time around? Check the numbers below:

23 Threes

23 for 56. That's exactly the field goal shooting of Team World from beyond the three-point line. They shot as if they were the Golden State Warriors with one difference: Team World had 8 players who made at least one shot from downtown. Bogdanovic went 7 for 24 from three while Buddy Hield made 5 of his 14 attempts from that area. On the other hand, Team USA only hit 11 of their 40 attempts from the three-point land. 

Dominant in Almost Every Aspect

Below are the following categories in which Team World dominated Team USA:

  • Rebounds: 50-38
  • Fastbreak points: 55-38
  • 3-point %: 41%-27%
  • Bench Points: 71-56


If there's one good thing that we've learned in this game, it's the fact that the NBA will definitely benefit from having international players who can dominate the game given the opportunity. Just look at the likes of Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili, Pau Gasol, Dirk Nowitzki and the giant Yao Ming, one way or another, they made a great impact in the NBA and the NBA has gained more popularity since these players made the jump. The likes of Giannis Antetokuonmpo, Bogdan Bogdanovic, and Jamal Murray will take over the league once the current generation of stars decides to call it a career.
