NBAAllStar2014

NBA All-Star Game 2014 was one to remember as record after record was broken this weekend in New Orleans.

To begin, the East and the West combined points totaled 318 points, beating out the previous record of 303 set in 1987.

The Eastern Conference prevailed in the 163-155 victory, ending a three-game losing streak for the Eastern Conference and a new record for most points in an All-Star Game. If the Western Conference had won, the West would’ve had the first  four-game win streak in All-Star Game history. Despite the loss, the West tied the previous record for most points.

Kevin Durant and Blake Griffin each scored a game total of 38 points, placing them on the record boards for the third-most points in an All-Star Game alongside Rick Barry’s 1967 record. Wilt Chamberlain scored 42 in 1962 and Michael Jordan scored 40 in 1988.

Carmelo Anthony led the pack with eight 3-pointers breaking the previous record of six by Mark Price in 1993 and LeBron James in 2012.

To end the game, Kyrie Irvin won the All-Star Game MVP award. Irving finished with 31 points on 14-of-17 shooting and 14 assists. He was 11-for-11 inside the 3-point arc.
