Team USA Rallies to Beat Team World, Bridges Claims MVP Honors

A historic All-Star Weekend for the Charlotte Hornets got a lot more momentous with Miles Bridges winning Rising Stars Challenge MVP honors in Team USA’s 151-131 victory over Team World on Friday, Feb. 14 at the United Center in Chicago.

The second-year forward finished with 20 points on 8-of-12 shooting, five rebounds, five assists and three steals in 20 minutes off the bench in the win. Bridges is now the first player in franchise history to ever garner MVP honors at this particular event and joins Glen Rice as the only Hornet to bring home All-Star Weekend hardware of any kind (1997 All-Star Game MVP).
