And he hit many, tallying 32 points on 11-of-15 from the field, 10 of which went for three-pointers. He also had seven rebounds and six assists. SPURS ROOKIE PHENOM VICTOR WEMBANYAMA CAUGHT SAYING F-BOMB DURING LIVE BROADCASTThese two high scorers weren’t the top of the game, as Minnesota Timberwolves big man Karl-Anthony Towns, who set the franchise points record earlier this season, dropped 50 points on 23-of-35 from the field with eight rebounds and three assists. Towns’ production came off the bench for the West, as Oklahoma City Thunder guard Shai Gilgeous-Alexander hit 12 of his 16 shots for 31 points, which led that starting five. LeBron James also made history with his 20th straight All-Star Game appearance, though he wasn’t on the floor much despite being a starter. He played 14 minutes, going 4-of-10 from the field for eight points. He had a couple highlight dunks before watching the game from the bench. The East’s captain, Giannis Antetokounmpo was very efficient in his time on the court, scoring 23 points with seven rebounds and one assist as he used his length and speed to show off some fun dunks for the crowd. Another notable performance out of the East was Boston Celtics forward Jaylen Brown, who hit 6-of-12 threes and 15-of-23 overall for 36 points, the second-most on his squad. He also had eight rebounds and three assists over 22 minutes.
