Western Conference Wins NBA All Star Game

Plenty of talk has circulated around the NBA about the strength of the Western Conference, and the All-Star Game was no different.

After racing out to a 20-point first-half lead, the West pulled away late and sealed the 163-158 win over the Eastern Conference in New York City.

Russell Westbrook was named MVP as he led all scorers with 41 points, falling one point shy of the all-time record held by Wilt Chamberlain. James Harden added 29 points, 8 rebounds and 8 assists on the night.

For the East, LeBron James made a run at the MVP with 30 points and seven assists, but he and his team ultimately fell short.

Jimmy Butler, known for his defense, was in for a bit of a surprise:

It looked like everyone out there wanted to be a Splash Brother:
