Found February 18, 2013 on NBA Injury News:
The Los Angeles Clippers have gotten off to a hot start over the first half of the season, and this is in large part due to the play of point guard Chris Paul. The talented floor general showcased his abilities on the national stage last night, and his efforts earned him the title of MVP of the 2013 All-Star Game.Paul helped lead the West to a 143-138 victory over the East All-Stars. The Clippers’ point guard scored 20 points on 7-of-10 shooting from the field. He also contributed 15 assists and four steals.While the award generally seems to go to the game’ high scorer, this wasn’t the case last night. Oklahoma City Thunder forward Kevin Durant led the way for the West, scoring a game-high 30 points. However, Paul produced a more even performance and was deemed the night’s MVP.Follow @hoopsinjurynews!function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];if(!d.getElementById(id)){js=d.createElement(s);js.id=id;js.src="http://www.nbainjurynews.com//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js";fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);}}(document,"script","twitter-wjs"); var _gaq = _gaq || []; _gaq.push(['_setAccount', 'UA-34100676-1']); _gaq.push(['_trackPageview']); (function() { var ga = document.createElement('script'); ga.type = 'text/javascript'; ga.async = true; ga.src = ('https:' == document.location.protocol ?
