This year’s NBA All Star game was the highest-scoring of all time with the West coming out on top, 163 – 158. Russell Westbrook’s MVP performance left him with 41 points, which was only one shy of the All-Star record. Along with tons of exciting plays, there were plenty of other stars who put up huge stat lines. Here is a look at who had the highest fantasy scores in the All Star Game:
3. LeBron James – 50.75 Fantasy Points: 30 Points, 4 Threes, 5 Rebounds, 7 Assists, 2 Steals, 4 Turnovers
LeBron had already won the All Star MVP back in 2006 and 2008, and probably would have taken home the award if the East had prevailed.
2. James Harden – 56.5 Fantasy Points: 29 Points, 7 Three’s, 8 Rebounds, 8 Assists, 2 Steals, 4 Turnovers
Hared had a very well-rounded game and was only 2 rebounds and assists short of a triple double. He would have joined Michael Jordan, LeBron, and Dwyane Wade as the only players to achieve a triple double in the All Star game.
1. Russell Westbrook – 56.75 Fantasy Points: 41 Points, 5 Threes, 5 Rebounds, 1 Assist, 3 Steals, 1 Turnover
Westbrook’s 41 points were only shy of Wilt Chamberlain’s 42 points in the 1962 All Star Game. After the MVP ceremony, Westbrook said, “It’s amazing. It’s a blessing to be here in New York City.”
