    By Victoria Barnett

    NBA All Star Game Steph Curry.jpgWhat an exciting weekend in New Orleans! NBA All-Star did not disappoint as we saw the top players in the NBA compete against each other in the classic East vs. West matchup.

    The NBA All-Star Game was full of entertaining and record-breaking moments, and we loved being there to witness it all. We always love seeing NBA players show their playful and fun sides as they set aside their differences and come together to bring entertainment to their biggest fans. 

    Let's take a look back at some of the highlights of the 66th NBA All-Star Game. 

    Highlight No. 1

    Anthony Davis and Russell Westbrook stole the show after the two combined for 93 points to lead the Western Conference to a 192-182 win over the Eastern Conference. The 373 combined points were the most in NBA All-Star Game history.

    Highlight No. 2

    We were curious how Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant would interact on the court, and they did not disappoint. Westbrook and Durant brought us all to tears when they reconnected with a beautiful alley-oop. Nothing like rekindling an old flame. Plus, Steph Curry’s yelling was the cherry on top of this heartwarming moment.

    Highlight No. 3

    Anthony Davis won Most Valuable Player after breaking Wilt Chamberlain’s record for points in the NBA All-Star Game. He set a new record with 52 points on 26-of-39 shooting and became the second player to log 40 points and 10 rebounds. The point that secured his spot in the record book? A lob! Sounds about right for an All-Star Game.

    Highlight No. 4

    The internet (Twitter, in particular) absolutely roasted Steph Curry and his headband. Even his brother, Seth, got in on the action. What did you think about it?

    Highlight No. 5

    Giannis Antetokounmpo defied gravity throughout the game. His windmill dunk caught the attention of fans and then before we know it he dunks on two-time MVP Steph Curry. And we can’t forget that prior to that, Curry decided to just lay down and steer clear of Giannis. Probably a smart move.
