It was an All-Star affair in New Orleans with the best that the NBA has to offer playing in a fun up-and-down game. Kyrie Irving of the Cleveland Cavaliers taking home the MVP award after putting together a fabulous 31 points, 5 rebounds, and 14 assists. He had some help with Carmelo Anthony and LeBron James combining for 52 points to take the East to an astounding 163-155 victory over the West. The game set the record for the highest combination of points from both teams in an All-Star Game at 318.

In the losing effort, Blake Griffin and Kevin Durant put on a show. Both players scored 38 points in the loss and had a dunking exhibition throughout the contest. They set a record for most combined points in a game by teammates at 76.

The East was down by double digits for a huge portion of the game but found a way to make a comeback late in the third quarter. The fourth quarter got serious with Irving making a few dazzling threes and Anthony making a key three to give the East some breathing room.
