Westbrook was named Most Valuable Player after finishing one point shy of Wilt Chamberlain's all-time All Star Game scoring record set in 1962.

His 27 first-half points set a new record for points in a half in the All Star Game.

LeBron James led the Eastern Conference team with 30 points and seven assists.
