Miles Bridges called his shot.

Team USA trailed Team World 81-71 heading into halftime. Miles Bridges had only scored five points. With the teams in the locker room, he tweeted this:

For those unfamiliar, this is the universal sign of a gamer turning up the intensity and taking the game seriously. In other words, "it's on now."

He backed it up on the court, finishing with 20 points and some monster dunk contest-worthy throwdowns.

Team USA rallied to blow Team World out in the second half en route to a 151-131 effort. For his efforts, Bridges was named the game's MVP.

This is a super important game and Miles Bridges winning the MVP is fantastic and we should all be super stoked about it. It's even better that he called his shot on Twitter.

It's a perfect start to All Star Weekend for the Hornets. Now we just need Devonte' Graham to take home the 3-point contest title.
