Anthony Davis named MVP, West wins NBA All-Star game 192-182

The best highlight of Towns' night was this three-quarters-court alley-oop from former University of Kentucky teammate Devin Booker. Steph Curry threw water on the two of them.

The New Orleans Pelicans star Davis was named MVP and broke the scoring record of 42 points set by Wilt Chamberlain in 1962.

The Warriors' pursuit of the top seed along with Russell Westbrook's historic season mark two of the leading story lines ahead of the playoffs.

Kevin Durant's triple-double was the fourth in All-Star Game history, joining Dwyane Wade (2012), LeBron James (2011) and Michael Jordan (1997). Carmelo Anthony, who was an injury replacement for Cavs forward Kevin Love, scored 10 points off the bench.

Both Durant and Westbrook downplayed the moment.

But what garnered the most attention was the 80 seconds Durant and Westbrook played together.

"When I came out in the third quarter, I had 32 [points]", Davis said. It's a great honor to be here.

The Thursday evening commute may be challenging in southeast New England, including the Boston and Providence metro areas. It's the weather, things can and likely will change! The storm was expected to pack a punch, but it's not a nor'easter.

"The guy that was really trying to break it down for me was (Golden State forward) Draymond (Green)", Davis said.

World coach Mike Brown said he was going to call every play for Murray, "even though we didn't have any plays".

"It feels unbelievable, that's what I wanted to do", Davis said. "I'm happy. I'm having fun. I had a great time". At first glance, this doesn't seem like it compares to Westbrook's season averages of 30.8 points, 10.8 rebounds, and 10.2 assists. James Harden soon joined the lone wolf and showed what a good friend he is. Westbrook flicked a pass to Durant on the left side. They were men of their word. "They have to figure it out themselves". Hield, a New Orleans Pelicans rookie, added 28 points to the delight of the locals who'll want to see more of that when the regular season resumes.

There surely was no defense played.

Following the hook-up, the entire Western Conference bench huddled around the two former teammates to celebrate the bucket, led by Sacramento Kings center DeMarcus Cousins.

Not a bad night at all for the 23-year-old superstar from Chicago. The East has won the All-Star game four times since 2006, which showcases West's dominance, and it comes as no surprise that the West have emerged as favourites for this contest as well.

While he attempted four three-pointers, all 26 of his buckets were of the two-point variety.
