Westbrook Named All-Star MVP for 2nd Consecutive Year


Thunder guard Russell Westbrook was named the game’s Most Valuable Player for the second consecutive season, finishing with 31 points, eight rebounds, five assists and five steals (as well as a number of awesome dances).

The game’s top scorer, however, played for the East. Pacers forward Paul George had 41 points, which was one shy of the All-Star record set by Wilt Chamberlain (and he had plenty of time to break it, but Thunder forward Kevin Durant and Warriors forward Draymond Green double-teamed him late).
