Like Ranveer, LeBron James also had a successful All-star weekend as his team defeated Kevin Durant’s team 163 - 160. The King scored 24 points, 8 assists, 6 rebounds and 3 steals as he hit a fadeaway jumper to win the game. But LeBron was over-shadowed by fellow Akron-born Golden State Warriors guard Steph Curry who had a historic 50 point game where he made 16 out of 27 three-pointers. Curry also broke Paul George’s record of making the most three-pointers in an All-star game with nine in 2016.
Whereas for Team Durant, Philadelphia 76ers centre Joel Embiid was the top scorer with 36 points 10 rebounds, 4 assists, while hitting 5 three-pointers. Charlotte Hornets sophomore guard Lamelo Ball also had an incredible game with 18 points, 3 rebounds and 3 steals for Team Durant. Since the inception of the new format, LeBron James’ team has been undefeated in the last five All-star games.
