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.
