2019 NBA All-Star Game: Boxscore, stats, top 10 plays and video highlights

Coming into the game, the internet thought that Team LeBron had way more talent and was going to dominate Team Giannis. Well, clearly the players on Team Giannis heard those words and the underdogs came out firing.

Team Giannis held a double-digit lead for a large part of the game. Then in the third quarter, Team LeBron’s reserves went on a 33-13 run led by Damian Lillard, Klay Thompson and Bradley Beal outworked and outshot Russell Westbrook, Nikola Jokic and Team Giannis’ bench all-stars. That run had Team LeBron taking a 133-132 lead into the fourth quarter.

From there, the game got competitive with Team LeBron, with game MVP Kevin Durant, imposing their will (and threes) to put the game out of reach. Team LeBron won 178-164.

And throughout the competition between Team LeBron and Team Giannis, there was plenty of highlights to be had. Paul George‘s 360. Wade to LeBron’s alley-oop. Dirk’s threes. Curry’s bounce pass to Giannis. Don’t have time to watch the full game highlights from the 2019 NBA All-Star Game? That’s okay, House of Highlights created their own top ten plays (and saved us from searching on 10 separate videos to post).

Not bad. We love that Khris Middleton got some minutes and hit those threes, but that wasn’t much of a “highlight” and should have been replaced by Curry’s left handed hook shot. Dirk’s long bombs as the #1? It was great to watch the legend hit some long threes in his last all-star game, but those moments should have been #10 instead of the top highlight over Curry’s alley oop to Giannis? Nah. This video was clearly made by a Nowitzki fan.
