Jamal Murray has big second half in Rising Stars Challenge

Friday night's contest will see a World Team going up against a U.S. Team and the live coverage from The STAPLES Center will be on TNT and streaming live online. Each competitor will decide the spot for that rack.

In the skills challenge, two players compete simultaneously on identical courses with the fastest finisher advancing to the next round.

Other notable National Basketball Association and WNBA legends stats from tonight's game - Stefanie Dolson (Chicago Sky) had zero points.

Only second-year Boston Celtics guard, Jaylen Brown, scored more points than Hield, leading Team USA with a game-high 35 points. Candace Parker (Los Angeles Sparks) had zero points.

"For the first 36, 37 minutes of the game, it was more competitive than it has been", said Houston Rockets assistant Roy Rogers, who coached Team USA.

The game marked the Lakers only representation during All-Star Weekend.

One of the highlights from Bogdanovic was jacking up shots alongside his Kings teammate, Buddy Hield, who put up 29 points (on a game-high 14 three-point attempts). Hield also added 3 rebounds, 3 assists and 2 steals, displaying the entire arsenal that earned him a starting nod in the Rising Stars Challenge in the first place. Second-year forward Brandon Ingram, started for Team USA, scoring eight points in 12:07.

Quavo, of hip hop group Migos, had the first the two points for Team Clippers, and Justin Bieber had the first three points for Team Lakers.
