In case you weren't aware, the two Detroit Pistons are on Team Shaq. They trail Team Chuck's rising stars by 12 at the half, 77-65.
In what has been a fast-paced, highlight-filled game, as expected, Greg Monroe and Brandon Knight have been able to hold their own against some of the NBA's best rising stars. Monroe had seven points, three steals, and three rebounds. Brandon Knight has nine points and a team-high five assists, including a fast break pass to Monroe for an easy bucket and a pass between his legs for another assist. Team Shaq shot 62-percent in the first half, but Knight shot a team-worst 3-for-7.
Kyrie Irving has been the game's best player by far, recording 18 points on 7-for-8 shooting (4-for-4 from beyond the arc). Irving is a big reason why Team Chuck is shooting 69-percent.
