West Beats East In NBA All-Star Game 152-149, Kobe Bryant Sets Record

The Western All-Stars dominated early, but a furious rally by the East and some missed free throws late in the game allowed the game to be decided on the final play. In the end, Dwyane Wade missed at the buzzer and the West came away with a 152-149 record-breaking win.

The combined 301 points was an All-Star Game record and Kobe Bryant set an all-time scoring record for a career in the ASG.

The MVP went to Kevin Durant, who led the West and was tied with LeBron James for the overall scoring lead in the game with 36 points.

For the West, Bryant scored 27, Blake Griffin had 22 points and Russell Westbrook had 21.

For the East, LeBron James had 36 points (but also two turnovers at the end of the game that kept the West on top), Wade had 20, as did Deron Williams and Carmelo Anthony had 19.

Phoenix Sun Steve Nash played only five minutes, did not score, but had four assists.
