The first quarter set a record for most points (101) - with the East up 53-48. Russell Westbrook, who was ON DAVIS' TEAM, scored 41.

The East are, unsurprisingly led by LeBron James who will look to continue his strong form at both ends of the court.

Not this time. It was Davis hoisting the trophy, to the delight of his New Orleans fans.

The New Orleans Pelicans star Davis was named MVP and broke the scoring record of 42 points set by Wilt Chamberlain in 1962. "I still have the Skills Challenge (Saturday night), so I'm looking forward to that". Davis did all of this in 31 minutes, constantly getting force-fed the rock by his West teammates. They've been setting him up for one basket after another.

Kerr said coaches at the All-Star Game are so useless, it's as though they're stand-ins for the movie "Weekend at Bernie's". 155 of them were dunks, layups or 3-point shots.

Antetokounmpo was impressive with 14-of-17 shooting on layups and dunks. Buddy Hield added 28 points for the World team.

The stars were everywhere, on and off the court during the 66th annual NBA All-Star game. "Every time, Kawhi [Leonard] was like, 'Six more points.' Or James [Harden] was like, 'I'm going to pass you the ball'".

Jonathon Simmons of the San Antonio Spurs scored 19 points for the USA, throwing down several forceful dunks. Teams like the game because it is a carrot for season ticket holders and teams generate revenue from the weekend.

Actions defend women's right to choose abortion
About 60 people attended the Stand With Planned Parenthood rally in the Virginia Commonwealth University Student Commons Plaza. They know that Planned Parenthood does not serve the best interests of American women and families.

The East vs. West showdown wasn't all dunks, though a exactly half of Davis' 52 points were uncontested throw-downs. Would Westbrook and Durant play together?

Davis scored 22 points in the first half and had 32 after the third quarter.

Who knows where Cousins will be come Thursday afternoon after the National Basketball Association trade deadline passes.

The most combined dunks in a regular-season game this year is 19. He averages 27.8 points, 10.6 rebounds, and 4.8 assists this season for the Kings. That's a 200-point pace.

Ever since Durant alerted Westbrook about his free-agency decision via text message, the pair's interactions changed.

DeMarcus Cousins played only two minutes for the West squad. Was that done by design by Kerr and the Western Conference team? Durant chose to leave Oklahoma City and not make another run at the title with Westbrook.

Oh, and count Charles Barkley among fellow hall of fame players Isaiah Thomas and Reggie Miller who believe in the young Nuggets. And a louder cheer came not long afterward when Beyonce and Jay Z got on-screen. "It's the All-Star (Weekend)", he said.

Also honoured Sunday were the five founding members of the NBRPA - Dave Bing, Archie Clark, Dave Cowens, the late Dave DeBusschere and Oscar Robertson. Robinson was chosen as the group's Humanitarian of the Year, and Hill is the Community Ambassador of the Year.
