NEW ORLEANS -- As usual, Duncan and Jordan were the best players on the floor.
U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan and actor Michael B. Jordan led their respective teams at the Sprint Celebrity Game on Friday, with Duncan's East prevailing 60-56. Duncan filled the box score with 20 points (a Celeb Game record), 11 rebounds and six assists -- the last of which was a sweet, behind-the-head dish to a cutting Skylar Diggans of the WNBA for a critical bucket down the stretch.
A couple of possessions later, Diggins found musician/actor Romeo Miller on the right wing for a 3-pointer that put the East up for good. The West missed six free throws and several lay ups in the closing moments and simply didn't have the chemistry that the East had with Duncan, Diggins and Miller.
