THREE POINTS

Feeling a Draft: TNT will reveal the team rosters for the 2019 NBA All-Star Game in a special NBA All-Star Draft Show on Thursday at 7 p.m. ET. Captains Giannis Antetokounmpo and LeBron James will draft their teams without regard to a player’s conference affiliation or position. Starters will be selected in the first round, reserves in the second round and special roster additions Dirk Nowitzki and Dwyane Wade in the third round. TNT will follow with a doubleheader as the Lakers visit the Celtics and the Trail Blazers host the Spurs.

Rookies Rolling: The reigning Kia NBA Rookies of the Month are on a tear. Dallas’ Luka Doncic has scored at least 32 points in three of his last four games, helping him become the seventh player to reach 1,000 points before turning 20. The only rookie to average at least 20 ppg/7 rpg/5 apg (as Doncic is doing now) in a season is Oscar Robertson. Meanwhile, Atlanta’s Trae Young has at least 23 points and eight assists in five straight games, joining Robertson as the only rookies to do it.

Dynamite Denver: Winners of six in a row, the Nuggets begin the week tied with the Warriors for first place in the West. This is the latest in a season that Denver has led its conference since 1977. During the current winning streak, third-year guard Malik Beasley is averaging 21.7 points. The NBA G League alum is scoring 11.4 points per game for the season after averaging a combined 3.3 points in his first two NBA seasons. Denver visits Philadelphia on Friday on ESPN.
