The Western Conference put on a show in last night’s All-Star game, with the Los Angeles Clippers point guard and MVP candidate Chris Paul putting on great performance and earning All-Star game MVP honors.

Kevin Durant scored a solid 30 points and grabbed 6 rebounds as the West won the game 143-138. However, Paul was just dominant throughout the game, throwing pin point passes and running the team. Despite his great performance, Durant acknowledged that Chris Paul was the star of the night:

“He deserved it. He held us in the game late in the fourth, making passes, getting steals, you know making big buckets. He played a hell of a game and congratulations to him. It was a pleasure playing with him”.

Blake Griffin was the recipient of quite a few lobs, as lob city took over the game. Griffin had 19 points in the game.
