BBVA Rising Stars Challenge 2013

Ty Lawson finds Kenneth Faried for the alley-oop from beyond halfcourt (VIDEO)


PHOENIX — The game between the Suns and the Nuggets has largely been sloppy and played without much intensity, and essentially devoid of any highlights.

It’s partly due to Phoenix throwing out seemingly random lineups during the team’s player development phase it’s going through, and partly due to Denver being mentally checked out to start the contest, with a game on tap at home against Carmelo Anthony and the Knicks coming up Wednesday.

Thankfully, Ty Lawson found Kenneth Faried for the alley-oop jam from beyond halfcourt to spice things up a little in the first half.

If you’re a Knicks fan, the positive is that at least Kristaps Porzingis tried to make a play.

But he was not going to stop the athletic Bradley Beal with a full head of steam, and the result was a Beal dunking over Porzingis as he tries to block the attempt.

Beal wasn’t sharp, scoring 12 points on 5-of-14 shooting. The Knicks has an efficient Carmelo Anthony and that got them the win.
