Rising Stars Challenge Highlights – Tim Hardaway Jr. & Dion Waiters go off, Andre Drummond drops MVP trophy

The BBVA Rising Stars Challenge this year was one for the ages. From Jared Sullinger knocking down triples, to Tim Hardaway Jr. and Dion Waiters having a shootout, to Andre Drummond pulling down 25 boards, this was one of the most exciting basketball games of the season, even if it didn’t count. Here are some of the highlights of the night:
