                                   Davis also had 10 rebounds. He held off a late MVP charge by Thunder guard Russell Westbrook, who had 41 points, 7 assists and 5 rebounds. 



                                  When Russell Westbrook passed to Kevin Durant and the latter lobbed it back to the former for a dunk, NBA narratives shifted like time-lapsed tectonic plates.



                                   After totalling 82 seconds together, both were nonchalant, which is an improvement over dismissive. Russ called it a “nice give-and-go.” Durant said the “great basketball play” happened because Westbrook “was open, so I threw him the lob.” It’s a start, but also, hopefully, an end. Before the second half, Westbrook warmed up on KD’s side of the court.



                                   
                                    Russell Westbrook, the MVP of the last two games, finished with 41 points, seven assists and five rebounds. Kevin Durant recorded a triple-double with 21 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists. '

Then he opened the fourth quarter with another 3, giving him 34 points in just under 14 minutes played to that point.



                                 "I was just having fun," Antetokounmpo said. "I told the coaches I'm going to play hard, no matter what. The guys talked to me a lot and they said, 'Your first shot has to be a layup so you can get in a rhythm.' So that's what I did." 


               
                                  Antetokounmpo was impressive with 14-of-17 shooting on layups and dunks. He attempted a single three-pointer and missed it.

                                  Eric Gordon won three point contest beating Kyrie Irving in Tie Breaker


                                  Gordon had the best round of the whole exhibition to start off his night, with 25 points. He made it to the finals against Kyrie Irving and Kemba Walker and kinda sorta choked on his final rack. Kyrie had set the pace at 20, and Gordon had 19 before getting to the far corner. He hit just one of the five shots there, and a tiebreaker was required.


                                  Irving had to go first, and his legs were clearly not the same. He missed several of his shots badly, and didn't even crack 20 points. The man formerly known as E.J. cruised to a score of 21, and took the trophy.



                      All-Star Slam Dunk Contest Winner :Glenn Robinson





                                 Robinson gets the C+, with the plus coming as a result of his victory, which largely happened by default. Robinson’s first dunk was arguably the dunk of the night—he threw down a reverse after grabbing the ball from someone who was perched on someone else’s shoulders. The best part of the slam was Robinson milking the setup, continuously asking the person holding the ball to go higher until he reached his perch.



                                 Aoron Gordon failed to defend his Slam Dunk Champion Title.

                  
                                 
                                 Kristaps Porzingis won skill chalange in All-Star week end.
