Holmgren wasted no time getting his first dunk of the game on the books.
The 20-year-old rookie tallied 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, who checks in a 7-foot-1, continued to impress as the first half got underway, putting on quite the performance against 7-foot-6 Tacko Fall.
Holmgren ended up leading all scorers with 23 points on 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 closest player (Josh Giddey) having just two.
