PHILADELPHIA 1976. EAST 123 - WEST 109


Go to: Ballot results

It was the second All Star Game in Philadelphia (first time in 1952), and second time that the game was played in February. East recovered in the second half and could win easily, 123-109. Dave Bing, with 16 points in the second half, got the MVP.
In the East also stood out Bob McAdoo and Dave Cowens. In the West the best player was Kareem Abdul-Jabbar with 22 points and 15 rebounds.
This edition commemorated the 200 years anniversary of the Independence of the USA (signed in 1776 in Philadelphia). 

In the first hal of the season Pete Maravich missed 6 weeks because of a shoulder injury, the main reason he wasn't picked for the All-Star Game. He finished the season with a 26 points average, appearing for the first time in the First All-NBA Team. He became the only player in the NBA history to achieve this honour in a season without having played the All-Star Game.

MVP: Dave Bing (East)
