The NBA Battles for Pride Between East and West for the First Time in 7 Years… The Winner of the All-Star Game is East


The MVP was Lillard, who hit 11 3-point shots… East wins West, 211-186

The Eastern Conference laughed at the National Basketball Association (NBA) All-Star Game, which was held in a traditional pride match between the East and West for the first time in seven years. 파워볼게임

The Eastern Conference All-Star team defeated the Western Conference team 211-186 in the 2023-2024 NBA All-Star Game held at Gainbridge Fieldhouse in Indianapolis, Indiana, USA on the 19th (Korean time).

Starting this season, the NBA abolished the existing method of conducting a draft across all 30 teams, with the player selected as captain having the right to select players.

Instead, players selected from the East and West competed as conference representatives.

This is the first ‘traditional All-Star Game’ held in 7 years since the 2016-2017 season.

The game time returned to 48 minutes, 12 minutes per quarter.

From 2020 to 2023, the goal was to add 24 points to the leading team's score by the third quarter.

It was a unique way to win if you reached the target score first without a time limit in the 4th quarter, but from this season, you win if you score more points like a normal game.

The East team took the lead from the beginning with captain Giannis Antetokounmpo, Damian Lillard (Milwaukee), Jayson Tatum (Boston), Bam Adebayo (Miami), and Tyrese Haliburton (Indiana) starting.

The West, which started with LeBron James (LA Lakers), Nikola Jokic (Denver), Kevin Durant (Phoenix), Luka Doncic (Dallas), and Shai Gilgeous-Alexander (Oklahoma City), was down 47-53 from the first quarter. .

Lillard scored 13 points, including three 3-pointers, in the second quarter alone, taking the lead in helping the East run away with a double-digit lead even before halftime.

East, led by Lillard and others, entered the third quarter with a 104-89 lead and won without allowing a single comeback.

Dongbu, which scored a total of 211 points, became the first team in NBA All-Star Game history to score over 200 points.

The previous highest-scoring team was the 2016 Western All-Star team with 196 points.

Lillard, who showed off the trick of scoring 3 points after stepping on the halfway line about 7 minutes before the end of the third quarter, left a deep impression on the fans by scoring 3 points from the halfway line just before the end of the game.

Lillard, who scored 39 points, the most in the East, was selected as the Most Valuable Player (MVP).

Lillard boasted explosive power, hitting 11 3-pointers.

This is the first time Lillard has been named MVP of an All-Star Game.

Lillard, who won the 3-point contest held the previous day and won his second consecutive title, enjoyed double fortune during this All-Star Game.

Jaylen Brown (36 points) and Haliburton (32 points) competed with Lillard for MVP until the end.

In the West, Minnesota Timberwolves' big man Karl-Anthony Towns, who came off the bench, exploded with 50 points, the most of both teams, but the shine was overshadowed by the team's loss.

James and Stephen Curry (Golden State), considered NBA stars, scored only 8 and 16 points, respectively.

The players demonstrated ‘3-point basketball', which has become a trend in the NBA, in this All-Star Game.

The East team took a total of 146 shots.

Of these, 97 were 3-point attempts, and only 49 attempts were 2-point attempts.

The Eastern team showed off its firepower, scoring 42 out of 97 3-point attempts.

In terms of success rate, it is 43.3%.

The Western team also threw a lot of 3-pointers, but their hit rate was disappointing compared to the Eastern team.

West attempted 71 3-pointers, but the success rate was only 35.2%.
