West 163 East 158
All-Star Weekend has finally come to an end and I think it was a successful. We highlighted All-Star Saturday and now we'll recap some of the best moment from Sunday's All Star Game. No analysis, just highlights.
I thought this was very cool for the Gasol brothers. For the first time in their careers, they battle each other on opposite teams in the All-Star game. I don't think you can think of a better brother duo than Pau and Marc. The Spaniards combined has 7 All-Star appearances and a ton of accolades in the Spanish League.
Steph Curry was having a field day with the dimes. He only had 5 but all 5 were beautiful playground style passes. Here is one to James Harden that surprised everyone.
One of the best plays in the game without question. If it wasn't for Russell, Bronny would have ended up with the his 3rd All-Star game MVP. He scored 30 points and is only 2 points behind Kobe Bryant for most career points in the All-Star Game.
Another one of Chef Curry's dimes, this time to Dirk Nowitski, who caught flight to catch the oop.
Kyle Lowry made sure he made some plays in his first All-Star appearance, even dunking the ball for the first time in 6 years.
Russell Westbrook was crowned MVP for his 41 point performance in 26 minutes of play, one point short of Wilt Chamberlain's single game All-Star record. Russ did break another, most points in a half, with 27, dazzling the New York crowd. I would like to Russell in a dunk contest, and it might be to late for him to participate, but I would love to see his flair and authority on All-Star Saturday.
