Frank Kaminsky is averaging just more than 10 points per game this season, but that didn’t stop him from lighting it up Friday night during the NBA Rising Stars Challenge.
The former Wisconsin big man led the U.S. team with 33 points after shooting 12 of 16 from the field, including a ridiculous 9-of-13 from beyond the arc.
Now, obviously these types of exhibitions aren’t known for their defensive intensity, but scoring the second-most points in the game (behind Jamal Murray’s 36) among players with this sort of talent is still a nice accomplishment.
You can watch Kaminsky’s highlights below:
During four campaigns with the Badgers, from the 2011-12 season to 2014-15, Kaminsky scored 1,458 points and was named the National Player of the Year during his senior season, when he helped lead Wisconsin to an upset of Kentucky in the Final Four before falling to Duke in the National Championship.
