Posts tagged: All-Star-Weekend
All-Star weekend is upon us and the Cavaliers will have a nice presence there. Dion, Tyler and Tristan are participating in the Rookie-Sophmore game. So is Kyrie, but he’s also in the 3-point shootout AND will be in the All-Star game.
Good exposure to our young talent.

Kyrie played absolutely lights out on Friday during the rookie-sophomore Rising Stars Game.
Irving was a perfect 8 for 8 from beyond the arc and finished with 34 points, helping Team Chuck beat Team Shaq 146-133 in the Rising Stars Challenge on Friday.
Irving said he couldn’t remember being so hot from the field.
“No, it’s never occurred in my career,” he said. “You know, it’s kind of unfortunate that it comes in the All-Star game. These stats don’t carry over into the season. But at the end of the day, it was still fun to get out there with those talented guys. So it was a great experience.”
Tristan Thompson also played fantastic and scored 20 points to lead Team Shaq.
Kyrie also participated in the skills challenge and struggled a bit, coming in 6th.
