NBA ALL-STAR WEEKEND RECAP

It was an interesting weekend for sports lovers, whether football or basketball.

In Basketball, the NBA All-Star weekend was special for a number of reasons – from Kobe Bryant’s final All-Star appearance, to Russell Westbrook winning the MVP title for the second consecutive year in the Western Conference All Stars’ 196-173 win over the Eastern Conference All Stars; becoming the first player in All-Star Game history to win outright back-to-back MVP awards.
In an edition that toppled last year's mark for total points, the Oklahoma City Thunder guard poured in a team-high 31 points and filled the rest of the stat sheet with eight rebounds, five assists and five steals in 22 minutes.

Indiana Pacers forward Paul George scored 41 for the Eastern Conference, falling one point shy of tying Wilt Chamberlain's All-Star record.
George could have broken Chamberlain's record, set in 1962, but he missed a 3-pointer with just under a minute remaining in the fourth quarter of the Western Conference's 196-173 victory.
Kobe Bryant in his final All-Star appearance posted 10 points, 6 rebounds and 7 assists.

In the Slam Dunk contest, last year’s winner, Zach LaVine, of the Minnesota Timberwolves needed a dunkoff with Aaron Gordon to retain the Slam Dunk crown.
LaVine pulled off a between-the-legs dunk from the free throw line on the second tiebreaker to take home his second straight dunk contest trophy, becoming just the fourth player -- after Michael Jordan, Jason Richardson and Nate Robinson -- to pull off that feat.
