LeBron James, Kyrie Irving shine for Cleveland Cavaliers at NBA All-Star Game

Anthony Davis of the Pelicans shoots the ball in the first half of the NBA All-Star Game at Smoothie King Center on in New Orleans, Louisiana. "It's all about fun". I'm having a great time. Frank the Tank had 33 points on 12-of-16, including a insane 9-of-13 from three-point range. While it won't be on display early, Leonard and Draymond Green, who is coming off the bench take plenty of pride on that side of the court so could prove to be the difference. "That's the only thing I know how to do". He made 26 of the 39 shots he attempted and didn't attempt a free throw. The Tank went off and scored 33 points on 12-16 shooting with nine made three's.

The fans in New Orleans saw, predictably, a high-scoring game.

Put simply, it's not a real game, and real-game thinking doesn't apply.

Stephen Curry scored 21 points LeBron James pumped in 23 to become the first All-Star to eclipse 300 points in a career and Isaiah Thomas scored 20 for the East.

He loves defense. He wasn't missing it on Sunday. I was just playing within the game, and I wasn't trying to force it. After Westbrook entered the game with 6:07 left in the first quarter, it took only 69 seconds for the give-and-go play to unfold. "It's the All-Star (Weekend)", he said.

But Davis looked to be the clear favorite when he piled up basket after basket in the fourth quarter and helped the West secure the win.

After beginning Sunday's 2017 NBA All-Star Game warming up on opposite ends of the court, one alley-oop between the duo seemed to have provided some type of closure for the two players. Kerr said there is a way to do this "without taking a charge". I think it's going to be a ratings success having it in New Orleans, but I also think there's interest in the National Basketball Association right now. "Just prop us up". "I think there's a happy medium in there somewhere". New Orleans hosted the game in 2014 and generated $106 million from the event. I would like to see it more competitive.

In fact, had you told me at that time that the Warriors would have four All-Star selections in four consecutive years I probably would've laughed and said it would was more likely that Keith Jennings would dunk on Hakeem Olajuwon in the playoffs.

Down the stretch, the East did apparently try to raise the defensive bar. Ultimately, team EAST, led by head coach Jemele Hill, proved to be too much to handle, cruising to an 88-59 victory.
