First quarter

Luka Doncic was the lead ball-handler for the World Team. He was directing traffic early on. The other starters were Brandon Clarke, Rui Hachimura, RJ Barrett, and Shai Gilgeous-Alexander.

Hachimura was throwing down some monster dunks early on including here off a lob from Luka.

Doncic also brought his step back to Chicago. The Mavericks star nailed a 3-pointer in the first quarter.

Luka only took two shots in his six minutes of action. He had three points, three assists, and one rebound after ten minutes of game time. The World Team also held a nine-point lead after one quarter.

Second quarter

Doncic returned with 5:52 remaining in the second quarter. He drilled a 3-pointer in the final minutes before stepping up and hitting from beyond halfcourt as time expired in the period. It is a must-see shot.

Luka was putting on a show in Chicago. He and Trae Young shared a moment after the shot went in that fans can enjoy here.

Doncic had nine points and four assists in the first half on three of six shooting. Both teams were showing off with plenty of impressive plays. It was a fun way to start the weekend’s festivities in the Windy City.
