The Dallas Mavericks went into the All-Star break on a high note. They earned a dominating 130-111 victory over the Sacramento Kings thanks in large part to a 33-point performance from Luka Doncic.

It was the 20-year-old’s first game since Jan. 28. He suffered an ankle sprain in practice and missed seven contests. His return was not a moment too soon. The Mavs need him, but Doncic will also be taking part in his first All-Star game on Sunday. Before that, he plays in the Rising Stars game for the second consecutive year.

Here is a look at everything fans need to know about NBA’s showcase on young talent on Friday night.

What to expect

The Rising Stars game features the best first and second-year players in the NBA. The format is Team USA vs. Team World. Fans can see the rosters here.

Luka Doncic should start and be the star of the World roster. He will get plenty of shot attempts and opportunities to shine in Chicago on Friday.

It is his second time in the contest. Last year, Doncic finished with 13 points, five rebounds, and nine assists in 24 minutes of action. The World squad lost the game 161-144.

Luka will be warming up for Sunday’s main event. The 20-year-old was voted in as a starter and select by his idol, LeBron James. Expect Doncic to have a bit of extra motivation in his first All-Star game too.
