Holmgren wasted no time getting his first dunk of the game in the books.

The 20-year-old rookie had 13 points on 80% shooting and three blocks in the first quarter. He was 3-for-4 from the 3-point line and 2-for-2 from the free-throw line.

Holmgren, checking in a 7-foot-1, continued to impress early in the first half and performed pretty well against 7-foot-6 Tacko Fall.

Holmgren eventually led all scorers with 23 points in 7-for-9 shooting. He also had seven rebounds and four assists. His six blocks were the most of any player on either team, with the next player (Josh Giddey) only having two.
