Russell Westbrook scored a game-high 41 points in just 25 1/2 minutes of playing time to lead the Western Conference to a 163-158 victory of the East in the 2015 NBA All-Star Game at Madison Square Garden on Sunday. The Oklahoma City Thunder star made 16 of his 28 field-goal attempts, including five of nine 3-point tries, to set a new All-Star record for points scored in a half (27, besting the 24 managed by Glen Rice in 1997 and Kyrie Irving in 2014). He fell one point shy of matching the all-time All-Star single-game record set by Wilt Chamberlain in 1962. LeBron James of the Cleveland Cavaliers led the East with 30 points on 11-for-21 shooting to go with seven assists, five rebounds and two steals in 32 minutes. He has now scored 278 total points over the course of 11 All-Star appearances, sitting just two points shy of the career All-Star scoring record held by Kobe Bryant.
