NBA All-Star Game Takeaways: Durant leads big Team LeBron comeback

NBA All-Star Game Takeaways: Durant leads big Team LeBron comeback

The Los Angeles Lakers' LeBron James and the Milwaukee Bucks' Giannis Antetokounmpo will lead a roster of 10 players selected by fans, fellow National Basketball Association players and a media panel to start at this year's All-Star Game. Simmons can put up some flashy assists, grab some rebounds and find some easy lay-ins and dunks to have an inflated line and push for the MVP honor if Team LeBron gets the win.

James persuaded coach Mike Malone to let the team leave the locker room to watch his half-time set, with Malone agreeing on the condition that they play better in the second half.

Portland Trail Blazers guard Damian Lillard, appearing in his fourth All-Star Game, finished with 18 points in 25 minutes off the bench.

His team's win boosted his All-Star MVP case, but Durant still heaped praise on Antetokounmpo following a breakneck, head-to-head showcase.

Davis is 6-foot-10 and averaging 28.1 points and 12.9 rebounds, as well as 2.5 blocks.

Checking into Sunday's game with 56 seconds left in the first quarter, Nowitzki needed just 22 seconds to drain a 3-pointer.

On the biggest stage of the weekend, here are six moments with Carolina connections during the All-Star Game. And not only that, but it was one of the best singular plays we've seen in many years.

"They've got a good balance there by lessening the physical aspects of the defense, the 3-point shot can drop", Abdul-Jabbar said. "As I said [at Thursday's dinner] in my speech, we've had way more fantastic moments than we've had not".

"He has the same dream", Wade said, "to one day be sitting up on this podium". He's been playing at a high level. The two starters with the most fan votes in each conference - James from the Western Conference and Antetokounmpo from the Eastern Conference - were named captains. Unfortunately, his squad, Team Giannis - which also included Kemba and Steph - fell to Team LeBron, 178-164. "And Dirk to play 20 years in the National Basketball Association is just ridiculous". At halftime both were honoured with commemorative All-Star jerseys. A lot of global players know how to play the game the right way.

Stephen Curry's mother, Sonya, who helped organize the event along with Chris Paul's mom, Robin, says Deloris summed up meeting when she told everyone, "We are blessed to be a blessing" to others. So you've got guys that can play four positions out there.

The celebrities came out en masse on Friday night at Bojangles Coliseum on Friday night for the NBA's annual All-Star Friday night extravaganza.

"Some of the practices, the lifting all the stuff you have to do around the game to stay ready, that sometimes will get a little harder".
