Irving wins MVP as the East tops the West 163-155
The East trailed by double-digits for much of the game, but used a 12-0 run to close out the West and end a three-game losing streak, 163-155.
The East trailed by as many as 18 points, but used a 12-0 run to close out the West and end a three-game losing streak, 163-155.
It was the highest scoring game in All-Star history as the East set both the team record with 165 points, and the teams combined set the record with 318 points.
Kyrie Irving led the East with 31 points and 14 assists and was named MVP. At 21 years old, Irving is one of the youngest players in All-Star history to win MVP, and the first from the Cavaliers to take home the award since LeBron James in 2008. Like tonight, that game was also in New Orleans.
Carmelo Anthony chipped in 30 points, setting an All-Star record with eight made 3-pointers.
