MILWAUKE 1977. EAST 124 - WEST 125


Go to: Ballot results

In an exciting final, Paul Westphal, hit two field goals and stole one ball, giving the victory to the West.
The third quarter was the key, with a 39-21 to the West, leaded by Paul Westphal and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.
In the East, the best players were Julius Erving and Bob Mcadoo, both with 30 points, and Erving becoming the second MVP in the history playing in the loser team.
This game will be remembered as the first All-Star Game after the ABA merged to the NBA (12 former ABA players participated in the game), and also for Dr. J dunk over Kareem. This was the first time the game was played on Sunday afternoon (12:45 local time), after 26 editions being played in the evening.

MVP: Julius Erving (East)
