BESTING THE WEST

East Wins NBA All-Star Game

Despite all the focus on Sochi, the NBA All-Star game still managed to snag America's attention with a close and high-scoring game. After the West's blowout first half, the East rallied for a record-setting game. The 163-155 win for the East broke the record for the most combined points in an All-Star game, and the East recorded the most points scored by a team. The West, though, set the record for most points scored in the first half with 89 points. Blake Griffin set the record for most field goals with 19, and Carmelo Anthony had a record eight three-pointers.
