Three brothers play in same NBA game

The Holiday brothers have created history by becoming the first set of three brothers to play in the same NBA game.

Jrue Holiday and the New Orleans Pelicans beat Justin and Aaron Holiday and the Indiana Pacers 120-98 at the Smoothie King Center last week. Due to the age difference between the brothers — Justin is 30, while Aaron is 23 — the three have never played in the same game before, even as children. 

The brothers made NBA history in the first quarter, too, becoming the first family trio to ever play in the same game.

The three brothers, who went to the same high school in the Los Angeles area, all found their way to the NBA.

Jrue is now in his 11th season in the league. Justin has bounced around more, having played for seven different teams over seven seasons. While Aaron is in just his second season in the league, and averaging 10.5 points and 2.5 rebounds mainly off the bench in Indiana.

For the record, New Orleans were too strong – cruising to a 22-point win.
