Danilo Gallinari Stars in 96-92 Win for Team World

After a week of growing the game of basketball in Africa, the NBA’s Basketball Without Borders wrapped up, suitably, with a basketball game, as Team World defeated Team Africa 96-92.

Danilo Gallinari led the World sqaud to victory, scoring a team-leading 23 points, while adding 8 rebounds and 3 assists. The oft-injured Clippers veteran showed that he is healthy in an MVP-winning performance.

While the game was close early on, Team World began to pull away, and were up 78-68 entering the 4th quarter. However, led by Philadelphia star Joel Embiid, Team Africa made it close.

Embiid was superb, scoring a game-high 24 points, along with 8 rebounds and 4 assists.

Oklahoma City’s Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot finished with 16 points for Africa, while Dallas’ Harrison Barnes scored 14 for Team World.

The game, played at the Sun Arena in South Africa, was Team World’s 3rd consecutive win in the Africa Game, following wins in 2017 and 2015.
