Bennedict Mathurin, Team Jalen win NBA Rising Stars Game

Team Jalen Rose made sure there were no upsets this time around as they beat Team Detlef Shrempf, 25-13, to win the NBA Rising Stars Game at All-Star Weekend in Indianapolis.

Team Detlef, composed of players from the NBA G League, scored a huge 41-36 upset win over a star-studded Team Pau Gasol (led by 2023 No. 1 overall pick Victor Wembanyama) earlier to advance to the championship game. 

The G League players brought the fight to the lottery picks, with the Osceola Magic’s Mac MaClung and Sioux Falls Skyforce’s Alondes Williams leading the way with 12 and 11 points, respectively. G League Ignite and 2024 NBA Draft prospect Matas Buzelis finished the game with a turnaround jumper from the right wing to complete the upset and kick the overwhelming favorites out of the competition.

However, Team Detlef fell short in the end against a locked-in Team Jalen. Led by Bennedict Mathurin of the hometown Indiana Pacers, Team Jalen got off to a strong start and never looked back.

Mathurin was named the NBA Rising Stars Game MVP for his efforts in the first game, scoring 18 points against Paolo Banchero and Team Tamika Catchings to win the first semifinal game. He then scored 4 points in the title game.
