Carmelo Anthony got the nod to start at forward for the East team and recorded 26 points to lead his team and pulled down an All-Star Game best 12 rebounds.
"Yeah, we competed today, from the beginning of the game. We talked about it. At halftime we talked amongst ourselves, and we said we were going to go after it. It was a great game, hopefully one of the better All-Star games. Everybody competed. We get guys out there of that caliber, they're going to compete. Nobody likes to lose." Anthony said after the game.
