Rising Stars Challenge 2012: Team Chuck Defeats Team Shaq 146-133

NBA All-Star games are typically a lot of one on one plays, show off moves, and very little defense. The BBVA Rising Stars Challenge was no difference as there were alley-oop dunks and massive blocks through out the game. It was Team Chuck who was victorious in Friday night's game against Team Shaq 146-133.

The Cleveland Cavilers were represented well as Kyrie Irving lead Team Chuck in scoring with 36 points and was 8-of-8 from three-point range, and Tristan Thompson led Team Shaq with 20 points in a losing effort.

Georgia Tech product Derrick Favors who was an injury replacement player scored 14 points and was a perfect 5-of-5 from the field and 4-of-4 from the free throw line.

In addition to the great plays in All-Star games there are also the plays that go horribly wrong and here is one of those in form of a GIF, this one involves MarShon Brooks failing miserably on a dunk attempt.
