ESPN’s crew Rachel Nichols, David Fizdale, and Brian Windhorst review Stephen Curry’s struggles in the Golden State Warriors’ win vs. the Toronto Raptors and react to Charlotte Hornets rookie LaMelo Ball getting his first triple-double, then saying he’s such a good rebounder because he played twenty-one when he was younger.

Despite that he plays in the point guard position, LaMelo grabs 6.3 rebounds per game this season. Worth mentioning that his height is 6’8″ (2.03m).

Twenty-one (21) is a simple basketball variation usually played by at least three players on a half-court. The game is individually-based, and the object is to score exactly 21 points before your challengers. By individual, it means you do not have any teammates within the game, and you are responsible solely for your points and overall performance, while other players are attempting the same.

Basic rules:
• A 3-point shot earns you 3 points.
• Regular shots made inside the 3-point line are worth 2 points.
• Free-throws made from the free-throw line is worth a point.

So if you’ve ever thought about how to improve your rebound skills, the twenty-one basketball game may be the answer.
