Kyrie Irving has been chosen for MVP of this game, with great appearance and scored game-high 34 points. Irving is also one of candidates for “Rookie of the year” award.

“Play of the game” was pass from Ricky Rubio for Alley-oop for Blake Griffin.

Tonight, spectacle will continue with four competitions: Shooting Stars Competition, Slam Dunk Contest, Three-Point Shootout and Skills Challenge.
