Cedi Osman and his Team World teammates fell short on Friday in a 161-144 loss in the 2019 Rising Stars Challenge. Osman, the lone Cavalier participating in All-Star weekend, played 15 minutes and scored two points on 1-7 shooting.
This wasn’t Osman’s best showing, Perhaps he was still feeling the affects off the ankle injury that has limited him in recent weeks, but he also seemed to be pressing just a bit. At one point, he even air balled a three-pointer. Osman did also have three assists, four rebounds and two steals.
Osman’s best two plays of the night were probably his assists. He had a nice long pass to Raptors forward OG Anunoby early on off of a long rebound:
He also threw an easy pass to 76ers forward Ben Simmons off the backboard:
Lakers forward Kyle Kuzma was awarded the game’s MVP award for his 35-point night. Simmons led the World team with 28 points.
