Portland Trail Blazers center Mason Plumlee scored 20 points, grabbed 11 boards, and got a block in just 17 minutes in the USA Basketball scrimmage.

Portland Trail Blazers center Mason Plumlee played only 17 minutes, but went 10-12 from the floor, scoring 20 points and snagging 11 rebounds with a block as Plumlee's White team topped the Blue team 134-128 in the USA Basketball scrimmage.

The scrimmage had an All-Star Game-esque feel as points were plentiful and meaningful defense was nowhere to be found. The full video can be found here.

Plumlee played a solid game peppered with nice plays like the one below, in which he got the block, then started the break with a behind-the-back dribble in rhythm that led to an assist.

The scrimmage was comprised mostly of players who won't make the 12-man Team USA roster in 2016, but still managed to pull in a crowd of over 12,000 fans.

Plumlee was also on the US national team during the 2014 FIBA Basketball World Cup.
