Timberwolves' Towns notches double-double in Rising Stars loss

AUBURN HILLS MI- FEBRUARY 01 Terrence Jones #9 of the New Orleans Pelicans gets off a shot next to Aron Baynes #12 of the Detroit Pistons during the first period at the Palace of Auburn Hills

The East has won the All-Star game four times since 2006, which showcases West's dominance, and it comes as no surprise that the West have emerged as favourites for this contest as well. Davis had four more dunks than any team has had in a game this season.

If Westbrook and Durant can find peace, maybe there's hope for Anthony and Phil Jackson, and Charles Oakley and James Dolan.

A couple possessions after Westbrook entered, he hit Druant with a pass near the middle of the key.

The combined 101 points in the first quarter, 189 in the first half, and 374 total were the most on record for scored points in a single quarter, a single half, and in total during the history of All-Star games. According to the report, the blockbuster trade would send guards Buddy Hield, Tyreke Evans and Langston Galloway, as well as 2017 first and second round picks to the Kings in exchange for the ultra-talented DeMarcus Cousins and veteran forward Omri Casspi.

The best of the National Basketball Association converged on New Orleans as the Western Conference defeated their Eastern rivals 192-182 in the traditionally high-scoring match. "I didn't want anybody to get hurt".

Not a lot of defense in the Rising Stars Challenge, which was expect considering they all show off their skills on the court.

Jimmy Butler is also on the floor and could bring a bit to the defensive end, but the East's true difference maker could be the sharp-shooting Paul George, who had a huge game previous year. The Bucks star finished with 30 points to lead the East.

In a free-flowing offensive game, the Thunder duo of Abrines and Sabonis had fun representing the World Team, combining for 13 points on 6-of-13 shooting in the World's 150-141 win over the U.S. Curry shouted on the West bench, which moments later broke into celebration.

"I don't know what y'all need, but I'm in a great place", Westbrook said Friday.

James had 20 at the break, but Davis led everyone with 22. Nick Young and Kemba Walker are also appearing in the shootout for the first time in their careers after posting.418 and.391 3-point percentages, respectively, through the first half of the season.

It undoubtedly would have been tougher for Durant to stay with the Thunder and try to get through teams like the Warriors and the Spurs in the playoffs, but what player isn't looking for the best opportunity to win? Curry, in fact, tried to throw water at Westbrook on the bench.
