Anthony Davis sets NBA All-Star best with 52 points as records tumble in game of all-out attack - Feb 20, 2017

Anthony
Davis
In the full-court lay-up drill and three-point contest otherwise known as the 66th NBA All-Star Game, New Orleans Pelicans forward Anthony Davis (6'10''-C-93, college: Kentucky) set an All-Star record with 52 points and Oklahoma City's Russell Westbrook (6'3''-PG-88, college: UCLA) added 41 points to carry the Western Conference to a 192-182 victory over the Eastern Conference on Sunday night in New Orleans. In a game in which defence was outlawed and feuding former team-mates Westbrook and Kevin Durant (6'9''-SF-88, college: Texas) played together for only 81 seconds, the West defeated the East for the sixth time in the last seven games. Durant left Oklahoma to join the Golden State Warriors last season, informing Westbrook of the news by text message. The 374 combined points broke the record of 369 set during the West's 196-173 win a year ago. The East was led by Milwaukee Bucks centre Giannis Antetokounmpo (6'11''-G/F-94, agency: Octagon Europe), who scored 30 points, and LeBron James (6'8''-SF-84), making his 13th All-Star start, with 23 points. Davis, named the MVP, broke the All-Star Game scoring record of 42 points set by Wilt Chamberlain in 1962. He made 26 of 39 shots from the field, eclipsing Blake Griffin (6'10''-F-89, college: Oklahoma)'s 2014 record of 19 made field goals in an All-Star Game. One play in the second half summed up the general mindset of the players, who naturally placed self-preservation ahead of bravado. Antetokounmpo stole the ball near mid-court and had a four-on-one against Golden State Warriors guard Steph Curry. Curry found a spot in the middle of the lane - 10 feet in front of the basket - and laid stomach-first on the floor while Antetokounmpo hit an uncontested layup. The world did not stop spinning on its axis, but it did skip a beat midway through the first quarter when the West embarked on an otherwise mundane offensive possession. Westbrook and Durant ran across midcourt on either side of the key. Westbrook flicked a pass to Durant on the left side, and Durant threw it right back to Westbrook on a give-and-go that resulted in an easy lay-up and a 31-28 West lead. At the next timeout, the West bench greeted Durant and Westbrook with high-fives, and someone poured a bottle of water on Durant's head. Clippers centre DeAndre Jordan (6'11''-C-88, college: Texas A&M) came over and bear-hugged Westbrook as team managers got on the floor and wiped up the water. The East led 53-48 after 12 minutes - the 101 combined points was an All-Star Game record for a quarter - and the West took a 97-92 half-time lead. The 189 first-half points broke the All-Star record of 187 points set in the first half last year (West 104, East 83). There was no defence allowed, so 58.1 per cent shooting by the West and 58.0 percent by the East in the first half actually was a shade disappointing.

Wizards rally to tie series with uncomfortable Raptors - 9 hours ago
In the lead-up to Sunday's Raptors-Wizards Game 4, Toronto coach Dwayne Casey posed a rhetorical question for public consumption. 'How do we respond?' the coach wondered. The Raptors had been run off the Capital One Arena floor in Game 3, dropping their first loss of the series in a turnover-rife shambles that saw Toronto's players, veterans and youngsters alike, lose their collective cool in the face of Washington's timely injection of physicality. 'How do you respond when someone is up...   [read more]

LeBron James
Cavs top Pacers 104-100 in Game 4 to even series - 9 hours ago
LeBron James (6'8''-SF-84) has been the first-round king for 12 years. On Sunday night, he needed Kyle Korver (6'7''-F/G-81, college: Creighton)'s 3-point shooting to put him in position to extend his reign. The two combined for all of Cleveland's points in a late 10-2 run, helping the Cavaliers to a 104-100 victory over the Indiana Pacers to even the series at 2. James drew boos from the crowd after flipping the ball up the court to run out the clock. 'You don't ever want to go down 3-1...   [read more]

Celtics Lose Game 4 to Bucks, 104-102 - 9 hours ago
Giannis Antetokounmpo (6'11''-G/F-94, agency: Octagon Europe) scored 27 points, including tipping in the go-ahead basket with 5 seconds left, and the Milwaukee Bucks beat the Boston Celtics 104-102 on Sunday to tie their first-round playoff series at two games apiece. Boston's Marcus Morris (6'9''-F-89, college: Kansas) missed a 14-footer at the buzzer with Khris Middleton (6'8''-F-91, college: Texas A&M)'s hand in his face to seal a nail-biting win for the Bucks. Seconds earlier, the 6-f...   [read more]
