Drafted to LeBron James’ team, VanVleet was part of a squad that rode Curry’s hot shooting to a 163-160 victory that was close until the very final buzzer.
In a postgame interview, VanVleet was clearly extremely appreciative to have the opportunity to be on the same floor as the best in the game. Playing on the same elite team as players like James and Giannis Antetokounmpo proved to the whole league that VanVleet has arrived as an elite player.
Fred VanVleet gonna finish with 6 points on 2 made 3s, 3 assists and a couple of rebounds in 9 minutes of his all-star debut
