Via Cosby Sweaters:

The BBVA Rising Stars Challenge has turned into a mostly ho-hum affair, due in most part to mixing rookies and sophomores as teammates — thus removing any incentive to play even half-heartedly. Friday was no different, as Team Chuck destroyed Team Shaq by a score of…well, that’s not important. What is important is that around the 5:30 mark of the second half, Kyrie Irving must have sensed the viewing audience’s collective yawn, and immediately sucked them back in with a little razzle-dazzle — at the expense of poor Brandon Knight.

Knight did come back at Irving at the opposite end, and the two guards traded crossovers on each other over the next few possessions, putting a cap on an otherwise forgettable night.

Reggie Miller used the large part of seven seconds when he drained two consecutive three-pointers against the New York Knicks in 1995. And it was the same seven...
