Stephen Curry sets record as Team LeBron win 163-160 against Team Durant

Stephen Curry scored 50 points and set an All-Star Game record as Team LeBron claimed a 163-160 win over Team Durant.

Curry, 33, finished with 16 three-pointers, setting a record for most in an All-Star quarter (six), half (eight) and game (16) in the process.

The previous all-star record was nine, set by Paul George in 2016.

Curry, who was two points off the scoring record set by Anthony Davis in 2017, won the Kobe Bryant Trophy as the All-Star Game’s most valuable player.

The All-Star MVP award has been permanently renamed in honor of 18-time All-Star LA Lakers legend Bryant after he and his daughter Gianna were among nine people killed in a 2020 helicopter crash.

 

LeBron James also played in his 18th All-Star Game to fall short of Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s record.

The Los Angeles Lakers star threw the game-winning shot on Sunday after his team had a 163-point goal in Cleveland.

James made 24 points for his team and the Milwaukee Bucks’ Giannis Antetokounmpo added 30 points and 12 rebounds.

Team Durant was led by the Philadelphia 76ers’ Joel Embiid, who had 36 points and 10 rebounds, while the Phoenix Suns’ Devin Booker contributed 20 points.
