Watch NBA All-Star Game Recap from NBA.com Watch the video

MVP: Kevin Durant (West)

West started on fire from the very first minute (7-0) with 2 shots by Kobe Bryant. Kevin Durant finished the quarter with a game-high 13 points. The second quarter was a scoring party, breaking some All-Star Game scoring records: most points at halftime (88) and most points scored in a quarter (90 points, both teams). Russell Westbrook was the star in the West with 15 points and a few spectacular shots and dunks, and leaded an early 18 points advantage. A 3-point shot by Blake Griffin at the buzzer made all these records happened. Kevin Durant (21 points) and Dwyane Wade (14) were the highest scorers for each team.
After Pitbull halftime show, Lebron James started making 3-pointers (15 points in this quarter) and the East came back to fight the game, only 12 points behind (124-112). With the second units playing in the first minutes of the fourth quarter, Kevin Love 8 points and battle gave again a 20 points advantage to the West, but a late push back leaded by Deron Williams, Carmelo Anthony and Lebron (they scored 25 points in the last minutes) make an exciting ending, but finally Dwyane Wade missed a 3-point shot at the buzzer to force an overtime.

Kobe Bryant became the highest scorer of NBA All-Star Games history with 271 points. Michael Jordan was the record-holder with 262 points.
Dwyane Wade made history with a triple-double: 24 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists, becoming the third player in the All-Star Game able to do this feat. The first player was Michael Jordan in 1997 and the second Lebron in 2011. Wade also made one of the highlights of the game breaking Kobe's nose after a hard foul.

Slam Dunk Contest: Jeremy Evans

Utah Jazz forward Jeremy Evans won what in my opinion was a very weak Slam Dunk Contest. His best dunk was a jump over teammate Gordon Hayward where he caught and dunk the balls Hayward threw in the air.
The contest included guest stars (Kevin Hart and Puff Daddy), tributes (White Men Can't Jump film, Larry Bird, Karl Malone and Cedric Ceballos) and even a dunk by Paul George with the lights turned off.
