In a game that was lacking in defensive effort but was not short on highlights, the Western Conference All-Stars came away with a 196-173 win at the 2016 NBA All-Star Game. It was the highest-scoring All-Star Game in history with Russell Westbrook taking home the MVP award for the second straight year.

The East led 43-40 at the end of one but the West scored 50+ points in each of the next three quarters to pull away for the win. Westbrook finished with a team-best 31 points to go along with eight rebounds and six assists. Steph Curry finished with 26 points while Anthony Davis added 24 off the bench. Chris Paul finished with a game-high 16 assists. Kobe Bryant, playing in his last All-Star game, finished with 10.

Paul George finished one point shy of Wilt Chamberlain's All-Star Game record with 41 points to lead all scorers. John Wall added 22 points while DeMar DeRozan finished with 18 off the East bench.

Al Horford went 3 for 3 from the field including a long three-pointer at the third quarter buzzer to finish with seven points. Paul Millsap finished 1 for 6 from the field and finished with three points in 19 minutes.
