NBA All-Star Game: East 111 - West 110

An exciting last quarter led by Allen Iverson, a battle between Kobe Bryant and Stephon Marbury in the last minute, and Kobe in the last play passing the ball to Tim Duncan, when everybody was waiting a shot. East team celebrated the victory like a Finals Game.
The East team show to the world, that the difference in quality between conferences is smaller than most of the people thought. But East show their heart in the last quarter (Iverson 15 points in the last 9 minutes, and Marbury two 3 pointers in the last minute) and overcame the height difference, that allowed the West team to win 95-74 after 39 minutes of play.
The game had started with an 11-0 score, led by the inside game of the West (Duncan, Webber, Garnett), and the first quarter finished with 30-17 and 10 turnovers for the East.
In the second quarter Vince Carter made a 360 (this dunk was better than the others made in the Slam Dunk contest the day before) and Ray Allen scored easily. The first half finished 61-50 with a huge 3 pointer by Jason Kidd.
Dikembe Mutombo with 22 rebounds was one of the main keys in the East win. 

MVP: Allen Iverson (East)

Slam Dunk Contest: Desmond Mason

Watch all the Dunks

It was the worst dunk contest in the All-Star history, there were a lot of dunks in the All-Star Game (even in the Rookie Challenge) better than the contest. Desmond Mason won with the lowest score in a final (89 with 2 dunks). 6 young players participated, but there wasn't originality. Only Maggette with a somersault, and Baron Davis with his recorded dunk. Davis probably was the best contestant, but he missed the key dunk in the final.

Players First Round Final
Desmond Mason 31-42-49:91 45+44:89
Deshawn Stevenson 30-46-49:95 38+47:85

3 Point Shootout: Ray Allen

Players were selected for two reasons, the best averages and most 3 pointers made. Ray Allen was the best, while Peja Stojakovic almost won two contests in a day (minutes before he won the 2Ball with Ruthie Bolton Holifield), and Dirk Nowitzki repeated as a finalist. Allen had only 9 points with 10 balls left, but in that moment he showed why he is one of the top shooters in the NBA, scoring 9 consecutive shots (10 points) that gave him the victory.

NBA Rookie Challenge: Rookies 113 - Sophomores 121

In 2001 the game had 40 minutes, 10 more than past editions. Sophomores won their second game, with 5 players who participated in the 2000 Rookie Challenge. In this edition Baron Davis, Richard Hamilton, Shawn Marion and Jason Terry joined the sophomore team.
It was an exciting show, full of alley-oops and dunks. The two teams were close during the game, but Steve Francis and Wally Szczerbiak were too much for the young rookies.
Some rookies made him a name in the league with this game. For example, Chicago Bulls point guard Khalid El-Amin with his ballhandling. Quentin Richardson was the MVP of the Rookies with 20 points, and impressive with 14 rebounds. Darius Miles was the dunk man.
In the sophomores Shawn Marion and Steve Francis were pretty good, but the unanimous MVP was Szczerbiak with 27 points and 11-13 FG.

MVP: Wally Sczcerbiak (Sophomores)
