East edges West in NBA All-Star game


NEW ORELANS, LA (WVUE) -- Cleveland Cavaliers guard Kyrie Irving scored a team-high 31 points to earn MVP honors and lead the Eastern Conference All-Stars to a comeback 163-155 win over the Western Conference All-Stars in the Smoothie King Center Sunday night. It was the highest-scoring All-Star game in league history.

Oklahoma City standout Kevin Durant and Los Angeles Clippers forward Blake Griffin each recorded a game-high 38 points for the West, which led by as many as 18 points. However, the East closed the game on a 10-0 run. New York Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony tallied 30 points, connecting on eight three-pointers, a new All-Star game record.

New Orleans Pelicans forward Anthony Davis scored 10 points with two steals and a rebound in his All-Star debut. He played just ten minutes but finished two alley-oop jams on assists from former New Orleans point guard Chris Paul.

The Pelicans (23-29) return to action this Wednesday hosting the Knicks.
