See also

Last night, the 2014 NBA All-Star Game took place in New Orleans, LA and featured the highest total score in the game’s history (shattering the record from 1987) as the Eastern Conference defeated the Western Conference, 163-155.

Cleveland Cavaliers star Kyrie Irving took home the MVP honors, scoring 31 points and adding 14 assists. Oklahoma City Thunder stud Kevin Durant shined for the West, scoring 38 points and grabbing 10 rebounds. Durant’s 38 points was third most for a player All-Star game history, falling short to only 1962 Wilt Chamberlain in 1962 (42 points) and Michael Jordan in 1988 (40).

The Eastern Conference squad was down 18 at one point, including a 13 point deficit at halftime. The East’s win was big, snapping a three game winning streak and showing that the East isn’t the weak conference that many NBA fans and experts think. Heading into the All-Star break, only four teams in the East were over .500 (the Indiana Pacers, Miami Heat, Toronto Raptors and Chicago Bulls).
