Kevin Durant and LeBron James were voted to captain the NBA’s All-Star game.
Eastern starters: KD, Bradley Beal (finally
an All-Star!), Kyrie Irving, Joel Embiid, and Giannis Antetokounmpo
Western starters: LeBron, Steph Curry, Luka
Doncic, Nikola Jokic, and Kawhi Leonard
The crazy part?
LeBron has as many All-Star appearances as the other four Western Conference
starters combined (17). Let’s see how his Lakers did last night:
(19-12) Brooklyn Nets 109 vs. (22-8) LA Lakers 98
LeBron (32 pts, 8 reb, 7 ast) surpassed 35K career points, an
incredible accomplishment demonstrating his consistency and amazing
play over his 18-year career.
Despite LeBron’s effort and Alex Caruso’s new shoe deal, the Nets
crushed the Lakers behind a barrage of 18 threes.
(15-6) #11 Iowa 77 vs.
(15-7) #21 Wisconsin 62
Can anyone stop Iowa’s Luka Garza? The nation’s per-game scoring
leader (24.7 ppg) put up 30 points and 8 rebounds to trounce the
(13-4) Wichita State 68
vs. (17-3) #6 Houston 64
Wichita St. used a +13 free throw advantage to pull the upset.
(21-0) #1 Gonzaga 87
vs. (11-7) Saint Mary’s 65
Gonzaga is blitzing opponents, scoring an absurd 93 points per game.
The Zags have to win three more games to complete the undefeated
