Rising Stars Game
The Rising Stars game features 10 first- and second-year NBA players from the United States against 10 first- and second-year NBA players from around the world. The game is also slightly different in that instead of a 48-minute regulation game, this is a 40-minute game with four 10-minute periods. Despite this game being shorter, there is no lack of scoring.
