While most of the game there is no defense played, at the end of the game the players start to play defense. The Play of the game went to Kobe Bryant who blocked LeBron James and then passed to Kevin Durant for the wide open layup. This sealed the win for the Western Conference.
Chris Paul was named MVP, he finished with 20 points and a crazy 15 assists. His Clippers teammate Blake Griffin also added 19 points. Durant scored 30 points.
“You just want to play fast. I like to throw the lob. I like to see guys hit 3s,” Paul said. “When we’re out on the court with all that firepower, why wouldn’t you want to make passes? You’ve got KD filling one of the lanes, you’ve got Blake, Kobe on the wing. There’s nothing like it.”
