Kyrie Irving taking it to the hoop to help the East beat the West in the 2014 NBA All-Star game. He was also voted the game’s MVP.

*(Via LA Times) – The Eastern Conference finally stopped Kevin Durant and Blake Griffin — then stopped their losing streak at the NBA All-Star game.

 Kyrie Irving had 31 points and 14 assists and was voted the game’s MVP, Carmelo Anthony made an All-Star record eight 3-pointers and scored 30 points, and the East rallied for a 163-155 victory over the West on Sunday night.

“It’s a great honor,” Irving said. “We had a few MVPs. Everyone out here today is an MVP.”

Durant and Griffin each finished with 38 points, four shy of Wilt Chamberlain’s All-Star game record. But the East scored the final 10 points to pull out a game it trailed by 18.
