Knicks rookie RJ Barrett made his NBA All-Star Weekend debut as a member of Team World during the Rising Stars Challenge on Friday night.
Barrett led all scorers with 27 points, despite Team World losing the game 151-131 to Team USA.
He finished the game shooting 11-for-17 from the field, and added in six rebounds, five assists, and three steals in 24 minutes of action.
The 27-point performance ties Barrett's career-high, as he scored 27 points against the Atlanta Hawks back in December.
