Watch: NBA Rising Stars Highlights for Nikola Vučević and Andrew Nicholson

Friday marked the first time two Magic players squared off in a Rising Stars Challenge. Here are the highlights.

The Orlando Magic enjoyed a franchise first on Friday night when Nikola Vučević and Andrew Nicholson took part in the 2013 Rising Stars Challenge at NBA All-Star Weekend. Never in Orlando's 23 prior seasons had two of its players taken the floor at a Rising Stars game. Vučević represented Team Chuck, which won by a 163-135 final over Nicholson's Team Shaq.

The video above shows the top plays for Vučević and Nicholson, including Vučević's three-pointer, both of Nicholson's dunks, and Vučević's alley-oop slam over his Magic teammate. None of those plays is as spectacular as Kyrie Irving laying Brandon Knight to rest, but then again, few plays are.

Vučević finished the game with 15 points, four rebounds, and an assist in 20 minutes, shooting 6-of-8 from the floor. Nicholson logged just 10 minutes, the fewest for any of the 20 players in the game. The St. Bonaventure product tallied six points and three rebounds on 3-of-4 shooting.
