Giannis Antetokounmpo had 30 points, 12 rebounds and six assists for Team LeBron in Sunday night’s NBA All-Star Game. Milwaukee Bucks teammate Khris Middleton finished with five points, five rebounds and two assists for Team Durant.
Giannis Antetokounmpo: “There were only two Europeans on this (75th) team right? That’s insane. Sitting next to Michael Jordan.. that’s great. Lebron James.. but having the opportunity next to Dirk who opened the path for us. That’s even more of an incredible feeling for me.” pic.twitter.com/plLE2ySsy0

Both their nights were overshadowed by Stephen Curry, who delivered the most remarkable long-distance shooting performance in All-Star Game history, and LeBron James, who had another victory in his old home.
Curry made 16 3-pointers and scored 50 points, two off Anthony Davis’ record. He was hunting it, asking on the sideline during a sizzling third quarter how many points it would take.
“It’s pretty special, obviously being back in Ohio,” Curry said, seconds after being handed the inaugural Kobe Bryant MVP Trophy. “The trophy is exceptional. Very humble, very blessed.”
