In the BBVA Rising Stars game, future All-Star Kyrie Irving did some serious damage and I mean that literally. Just ask Brandon Knight and the guy who had to get him a pack of ice for his broken ankles after the game.
If that wasn’t nasty enough, Irving finished the game with a team-high 32 points on 14 of 20 shooting in just 26 minutes. As for Knight, he scored 10 points on 4 of 14 shooting – maybe his wrist was also hurting him.
