The Western Conference won once again in the 2013 NBA All-Star Game, defeating the East, 143-138. This year’s All-Star Weekend was capped off nicely, as Chris Paul walked out with MVP honors for the game, as he led the West with 20 points and 15 assists.
What really got Paul the MVP was thanks to his clutch three-pointers in the fourth quarter that helped the West run away with the win. Plus, we can’t forget the play where he made Chris Bosh look silly with this between-the-legs dribble.
LeBron James was on a comeback trail late in the fourth, as he was looking to bring the East back in it. He was on a roll throughout the second half, but was stopped with less than three minutes remaining after Kobe Bryant delivered a block. He would actually end up doing it to James twice.

James did have 19 points in the game, but shot 7-of-18. Once again, James fell short in the All-Star Game, and got some trash-talking from Kobe afterwards. The exact thing happened in last year’s game, where LeBron decided to pass-out instead of taking a game-winning shot, which led to the Black Mamba trash-talking away.
Bryant had nine points and eight assists in the game. You could see the Bryant-James rivalry heating up in the end.
“It was all in good spirit, man. It was just two guys that love to compete, love to go at it. So I had a lot of fun,” James said.
Kevin Durant led the West with 30 points. Blake Griffin was not far behind, adding in 19. Paul George added 17 for the East, along with Kyrie Irving‘s 15. Kevin Garnett, who said this would be his last All-Star Game, finished with three rebounds and a Craig Sager diss.
It was a fun game to watch and a great way to end All-Star Weekend and celebrate Michael Jordan‘s 50th birthday.

Chris Bosh is having a rough go at the All-Star Game being held in Houston Sunday evening; he’s had a few noticeable erroneous shots (airballs) and then this happens.

The Los Angeles Clippers have the best point guard in the NBA in Chris Paul, that simply is not debatable, but they also have arguably the best backup point guard as well, in Eric Bledsoe, or at least the most promising and sought after backup. There is no doubt that Bledsoe is a starting caliber point guard in this league, but they cannot trade him this year, despite the bounty...
