North Carolina v Duke

In a typical Sacramento-Boston game we’d be talking about four former Duke players but in this one, Kyrie Irving and Marvin Bagley were both out so we’re down to Jayson Tatum and Harry Giles.

As you may remember, those guys are long-time best friends and after the game they exchanged jerseys. How cool is that?

Tatum had the better game with 24 points to Giles’ six and Boston won 111-109. Giles, who had significant knee problems at the end of high school and in his one year at Duke, is regaining his form and showing people why he was considered the best player in his class.
