Bennedict Mathurin, a member of the Indiana Pacers, led Team Jalen to victory in the NBA Rising Stars game. 

Mathurin defeated Team Tamika in the semifinal game by scoring 18 points and making a shot that proved to be the game-winning shot.  

He was a part of a well-rounded effort that was put out against Team Detlef in the championship match.  

• Mathurin was named the game's MVP for his outstanding performance, receiving many MVP shouts from the Gainbridge Fieldhouse audience. 

Matas Buzelis, a forward for the G League Ignite, made a successful jump shot, which ultimately led to his team securing the victory.  

Mathurin secured his second Rising Stars triumph, having previously been part of Team Pau, the winning team in 2023. 

Even though Wembanyama was defeated, he will still take part in the Skills Challenge that will take place on Saturday evening.  

Bennedict Mathurin, who is considered to be one of the NBA's Rising Stars, shines brightly in each and every game.
