The first game of the NBA Asia Challenge was held on Saturday in Seoul, and the Korean All-Stars pulled out a 114-98 victory over a team comprised of retired NBA players and current D-Leaguers.  There's not really much information available about the game except for the boxscore.  The Korean players were led by Jeon Tae Pung, who scored 32 points, as well as Lee Kyu Sup and Moon Kyoung Eun who each had 20.  Lee Seung Joon threw in 19 points and 11 rebounds.  Dominique Wilkins led the "NBA Generations" team with 31 points and eight rebounds.  Billy Thomas somehow grabbed a game-high 11 rebounds to go with 18 points.  Tim Hardaway had a game-high eight assists.  The Korean team's win can likely be traced to their dominance from behind the arcs, making 49 percent of their three-pointers compared with 22 percent for the Americans.  The U.S. team also shot just 59 percent from the free-throw line.

You can find a PDF of the full boxscore here.  The next game is today against Incheon.
