MVP: Jamal Murray (Team World)

2017 edition will be the third game with the new format: USA players vs International players.

At halftime the Team World took a good 77-66 lead, guided by their bigs (Porzingis and Jokic) and with Pelicans guard Buddy Hield (19 points) destined to get the MVP. Undrafted Spurs Jonathon Simmons was the best scorer for Team USA with 12 points.

Halfway the second half, Team USA had a short lead on the scoreboard thanks to a 12-0 run against Team World bench. At that moment, Frank Kaminsky and Jamal Murray started a war of three-pointers (both players scored 9 total), and the Canadian had a key role for Team World to win, and also winning the Most Valuable Player trophy with 36 points and 11 assists (27 on the second half).

Domantas Sabonis and Arvydas Sabonis (1996 game) are the first son/father duo to play in the Rookies/Rising Stars.
Joel Embiid (left knee injury) and Emmanuel Mudiay (back injury) didn't play the game, Alex Abrines and Willy Hernangomez were named as replacements.
