NBA All-Star Game: Team LeBron 148 - Team Stephen 145

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

MVPLeBron James (Team LeBron)

From the very beginning, and up to the last play, it was already clear that (a little bit of) defense was back at the NBA All-Star Game. No more 100 points quarters. Just a quick stat: 28 free throws attempted (both teams) in 2018 and only 8 in 2017.

Team Stephen has a 10+ points advantage early on the second quarter, but LeBron James with 15 points (10 in the second) cut the difference. Klay Thompson scored 15 points on 5-9 three pointers.

The second half was exciting. Team Stephen continued to dominate with little advantages, but at the end of the game Team LeBron with Irving, Westbrook, George, James and Durant on court turned over the game to win the first match of the new format era. DeMar DeRozan and Damian Lillard with 21 points were Team Stephen best scorers.

Anthony Davis played with '#0 Cousins' on his uniform in a tribute to his teammate DeMarcus Cousins, who missed the game with an Aquilles tendon injury.
Russell Westbrook was the player chosen to replace Cousins on the starting lineup.

This is the third MVP trophy for LeBron James. Only Bob Pettit and Kobe Bryant have won more MVP's than him.

Warriors were represented by 4 players in the NBA All-Star Gamee for the second consecutive season.
