The Western Conference took the “W” on Sunday night (Feb. 15) during the 2015 NBA All-Star Game, led by MVP Russell Westbrook, who scored 41 points.
Leading the way to a 163-158 win over the East, Russ’ performance was just one shy of an All-Star record. Wilt Chamberlain holds the game’s scoring record with 42 points.
“It’s amazing. It’s a blessing to be here in New York City,” Westbrook said during the MVP ceremony.
James Harden contributed points, eight rebounds and eight assists for the West, while on the East, LeBron James finished with 30 points, but couldn’t bring his team the win.
