Cliff Alexander will face a tough test at the United Center, and the most interesting thing to see will be how his regular season fares before the McDonald’s All American game. Alexander and Jahlil Okafor will be battling for a lot of rebounds in this one, though expect it to be a little less physical just because it is an exhibition game.
Much thanks to the tweet below for pointing this out, and always enjoy Michael O’Brien’s stuff.
Jahlil Okafor vs. Cliff Alexander is guaranteed to happen April 2 at the UC http://t.co/wQxI6z30Hy

Actually looking more forward to seeing how they battle in practice; that is when we will see who has developed more skill, but the game will probably feature some monster dunks so that will be quite fun as well. Picking Okafor and Emmanuel Mudiay’s squad to run away with this one, just because Tyus Jones will have trouble checking Mudiay in such a high tempo game. If this was the regular season, then it might be a different story but we all know that exhibition games as not exactly well known for their defensive brilliance in basketball.
Thanks for reading; that is all for Prep today, but if you still Jones-ing for @AllDave_AllDay then be sure to check out some pro basketball content later on. Stay warm out there Chi-town.
