NBA All-Star Friday: Jabari Parker posterizes Kristaps Porzingis in Rising Stars Challenge

New, comments

Jabari Parker might have been the most unselfish guy on the court at the Rising Stars Challenge in Toronto on Friday night, but that didn't stop him from baptizing Knicks rookie Kristaps Porzingis with a late-game double-pump slam:

Parker dished out five assists and only took 10 shots -- hitting six -- as the U.S. team ran away 157-154 winners. Still, Parker delivered his share of highlights even before the dunk on Porzingis, including a huge windmill dunk early in the game, which he followed with a terrific chase-down block on Nikola Jokic moments later.

He also buried a straightaway three in the second half, though for some reason the scorekeepers only gave him credit for a long two.
