5:13 p.m.: Basically LaVine has realized that while he can’t dunk, he can just hang in the air on layups. Pierce, owner of far less athletic legs, is up to H-O-R as a result.

5:06 p.m.: LaVine is hitting everything in the early going. Pierce is up to H-O.

5:02 p.m.: LaVine can’t dunk in this competition (per tournament rules). Let’s see if his shooting can hold up against a king of basketball fundementals.

Mike Conley vs. Tamika Catchings

7:55 p.m.: FINAL: Conley wins easily. Conley saves his best shot for last, knocking down a behind the backboard layup.

7:40 p.m.: Catchings and Conley match each other with 360 layups in the early going.

Trae Young vs. Chauncey Billups

7:32 p.m.: FINAL: Chauncey Billups wins his first round matchup. After starting out up three, Young falls apart and doesn’t gain another point on Billups, who eliminates Young with a banked 3. Young didn’t attempt a single long-range shot. That should be considered a major disappointment.
