Kyle Lowry and Serge Ibaka went head-to-head at the second ever NBA Africa Game in Johannesburg on Saturday, and the Toronto Raptors point guard got the better of the meeting. Not only did Lowry’s Team World beat Ibaka’s Team Africa, 108-97, but Lowry managed to get the edge in some one-on-one, too.
Lowry was doing Lowry things most of the game, finishing with 13 points, seven rebounds, five assists, and four steals in 23 minutes.
Ibaka wasn’t without his own moments, scoring seven points in 23 minutes and throwing down a big transition dunk.

Victor Oladipo walked away with MVP honors after dropping a game-high 28 points in a losing effort for the Africa side. Elsewhere for Africa, Emmanuel Mudiay put up a 22-9-8 near-triple-double and Clint Capela had an 11-and-10 double-double. Supporting Lowry were DeMarcus Cousins, who had an 11-and-10 double-double, and Courtney Lee, Kemba Walker, Kristaps Porzingis, Andre Drummond, and Jaylen Brown, who all scored in double-figures. Drummond even went 1-of-4 on threes, so, you know, you’re move at EuroBasket, Jonas.
