NBA exhibition game in PhilippinesThe AP reports: A group of NBA stars, including the Thunder's Kevin Durant and James Harden, defeated a team from the Philippines, known as the PBA stars, 131-105 Saturday night at the Areneta Coliseum in Manila. Wizards big man Javale McGee led the U.S. team with 25 points and Durant added 22. Harden finished with 16 points. The Lakers' Kobe Bryant served as player coach, starting himself, Durant, McGee, the Hornets' Chris Paul, and the Bulls' Derrick Rose. Arwind Santos led the PBA stars with 25 points.

The Chicago Tribune reports: According to media reports, Washington Wizards big man Javale McGee led the NBA team, which played under the banner of SMART All-Star team, with 25 points. Kevin Durant, Tyreke Evans, James Harden, Kobe Bryant and Chris Paul also scored in double figures in the exhibition, which is one of two games during what is being billed as the Ultimate All-Star weekend.

More from the Chicago Tribune: An article published in The Philippine Star said the sellout crowd "went wild as Rose was called to the floor and the fans went wilder as (Bryant) took his turn -- the last being the main man -- to enter the court." Bryant served as player-coach and started himself, Durant, Paul, Rose and McGee, the newspaper reported. A second exhibition will be played on Sunday against a team called Smart Gilas Pilipinas. The games are being staged in the same arena that housed the famous Thrilla in Manila heavyweight championship fight between Muhammad Ali and Joe Frazier in October 1975.
