The Western Conference outlasted their Eastern Conference counterparts, 152-149, in last night’s NBA All-Star Game. Kevin Durant took home MVP honors by scoring 36 points, becoming the youngest player to ever win the award.
After being dominated for most of the game, the East made a furious rally on the strength of lights-out shooting from LeBron James.
The game followed a proud tradition of lackluster defending, so cutting it down to 10 offensive highlights was actually a bit of a chore. Seriously, there were dunks galore. Someone should mention to these guys that there’s a whole contest devoted to that craft on All-Star Saturday. An average person really wouldn’t mind seeing Blake Griffin and Russell Westbrook instead of Chase Buddinger and Jeremy Evans]
