NBA All-Star history was made with an extraordinary showdown at Gainbridge Fieldhouse in Indianapolis on Sunday. The Eastern Conference outshone the Western Conference with a remarkable 211-186 victory, marking the return of the East vs. West format after a six-year hiatus.

Under the leadership of Milwaukee Bucks head coach Doc Rivers, the Eastern Conference secured the win in what turned out to be the highest-scoring NBA All-Star Game ever. The total combined score of 397 points surpassed the previous record set in 2017, with the East also setting a new record for the highest score by one team in Indiana.

The game saw numerous records tumble, with the Eastern Conference attempting a staggering 97 three-point shots, hitting an impressive 42 of them. Additionally, they notched an unprecedented 103 points in a single half.

Damian Lillard, the guard representing the East, earned the All-Star Most Valuable Player (MVP) award for his outstanding performance, tallying 39 points, including an impressive 11 three-pointers. It was a night of spectacular feats and thrilling basketball, leaving fans in awe of the talent on display.

"It's an honour. I've been here quite a few times, so to have this kind of accomplishment is special," Lillard said after collecting the Kobe Bryant MVP Trophy.

"I think 200 is a lot to be scored. It just shows that we didn't go out there and compete like I guess you would want us to or whoever would want us to. But I think that's just what it is. Guys are talented. Make a lot of shots. We hit a lot of 3s, and that was it."

Jaylen Brown made a significant impact off the bench for the Eastern Conference, contributing 36 points and eight rebounds. Tyrese Haliburton also had a standout performance, scoring 32 points with double figures in three-pointers.

Despite battling an ankle injury, LeBron James managed to participate in his 20th All-Star game. However, his playing time was limited to just 14 minutes, during which he scored eight points for the Western Conference. Unfortunately, he was unable to convert any of his three attempts from beyond the arc.

Karl-Anthony Towns, who was a replacement player, led all scorers with an impressive 50 points. However, his efforts weren't enough to secure a win for the Western Conference, as the Eastern Conference emerged victorious, marking their first All-Star success since 2014.
