The Rising Stars Challenge on All-Star weekend’s opening night was largely an abomination, with players going half-speed, playing zero defense, and only occasionally producing the kind of highlights one would hope to see in an exhibition game.
But there were a few noteworthy moments, and this one, started by Ricky Rubio dribbling between the legs of DeMarcus Cousins before finding Blake Griffin for the alley-oop finish, was by far the best of the evening.
