By Ruben Morales Iglesias, Belize City: Team LeBron was quite dominant Sunday night in the NBA All-Star game at the State Farm Arena in Atlanta.
Team LeBron won all four quarters as they knocked out Team Durant 170-150 finishing it off with a near half-court 3-point shot from Damian Lilliard.
Giannis Antetokounmpo who scored 35 points was voted the game’s MVP. Hitting 16-for-16 from the field, Antetokounmpo set a new All-Star Game record for the most consecutive attempts without missing a beat.
Lillard finished the night with 32 points while Steph Curry scored 28 points.
Team Durant was led by Bradley Beal with 26 points.
Seven players finished in double figures.
Team LeBron is now 4-0 since the NBA eliminated the traditional conference format in 2018.
Joe Embiid and Ben Simmons missed the game because of contact tracing as their barber was positive for COVID -19. Both, however, returned negative results.
The NBA said all players, coaches, and officials were tested three times before last night’s game.
The NBA gala event has been termed the All-Star Weekend but this time around, courtesy of COVID-19, all events were packed into one night. The 3-point shootout and skills competition lead into the game.
Domantis Sabonis put on a show to take the Skills Challenge. The Pacers big man outperformed Julius Randle, Luka Doncic, and Nikola Vucevic. Next, favorite Stephen won the 3-point Contest over Mike Conley.
The Slam Dunk Contest, which was done at half-time, was claimed by Anfernee Simons.
