ATLANTA (AP) — Milwaukee's Giannis Antetokounmpo was named the MVP of an NBA All-Star Game that saw LeBron James' squad dominate Kevin Durant's.
Team LeBron showed off its high-flying and long-range skills during a dominating run to close out the first half.
That set up a 170-150 romp over Team Durant in the league’s 70th midseason showcase, this one sure was different than the previous 69 All-Star contests.
In the midst of a pandemic, the NBA staged the game in a mostly empty arena in downtown Atlanta. But the result was familiar. James is now 4-0 as a captain, blowing away Kevin Durant's squad.
