Record-Breaking Performance

By halftime, the hosts had built a staggering 44-point lead, marking the largest halftime lead in franchise history, as reported by ESPN.

Unstoppable Force

His love for basketball and connection to the NBA further solidify his status as a global star with a passion for the sport.
