The West of the NBA has taken the bragging rights over the East in the 65th All-Star game with a comprehensive 196-173 win over the East.

Both teams put together a scoring frenzy, easily eclipsing last year's performance for most combined points in a single match. 

Oklahoma City Thunder point guard Russell Westbrook was crowned the All-Star MVP for the second year in a row, the first time that has been done since 1958-59. 

Westbrook finished with seven three pointers and 31 points overall, including eight rebounds, five assists and five steals for the match.

Indiana Pacers big man Paul George was the best performed for the East, scoring 41 points, one shy of the All-Star all-time scoring record set by NBA legend Wilt Chamberlain.

LA Lakers and NBA legend Kobe Bryant played in his last All-Star game, finishing with ten points, six rebounds and seven assists. 

The NBA will kick off again on Friday morning when the Wizards host the Jazz at the Verizon Centre.
