OKC Thunder guard Josh Giddey falls in the NBA Skills contest while trying to carry NBA rookies
The Rookies were up first in the shooting portion, and they elected to have Josh Giddey start with the shooting pouring in 16 points nailing corner threes. Toronto Raptors rookie Scottie Barnes continued an awful showing at NBA All-Star weekend going 0-for-6 to start, before only producing six points for the group. The Antetokounmpo trio finished with 16 points after Thanasis put up zero following Alex and Giannis chipping in eight points apiece.
In the passing portion, Josh Giddey absolutely dominated as expected going for 36 points, to help the Rookies reach 88 total points.
