Sunday's NBA All-Star Game was packed with highlights, but in the end, the Western Conference earned a record-setting 196-73 win over the East... and Russell Westbrook landed MVP honors for the second straight year.
The OKC Thunder guard poured in a team-high 31 points, while adding eight rebounds, five assists and five steals in 22 minutes. "I was honestly surprised I won it again," Westbrook told ESPN after the game. "I was very surprised to have my name called. I'm happy and blessed to be in the game again and for the opportunity."
Russ garnered six of a possible 12 MVP votes, while Indiana Pacers forward Paul George and Kobe Bryant each earned two. George scored a game-high 41 points, including burying nine 3-pointers, and fell two points shy of Wilt Chamberlain's All-Star record of 42 points.
