Often part of three-point-guard lineups with Thomas and Lowry, Walker served as the distributor of the group, handing out six assists while attempting just six shots. Most memorably, Walker made a pull-up 3 in the fourth quarter.
An All-Star starter for the first time, Butler had a quiet evening, putting up six points, three rebounds and two assists in 19 minutes. He scored a pull-up over Jordan and set up Antetokounmpo with an alley-oop.
Game Youth Taylor Lewan Jersey The NBA’s second-leading scorer took a surprising backseat in the All-Star Game, handing out as many assists (12, a team high) as he scored points. All nine of Harden’s shot attempts came from beyond the arc, of which he made four. Yet Harden’s attempts to make the spectacular play also resulted in 10 turnovers, more than all his West teammates combined (seven). And one of his 3s was actually an errant alley-oop pass.
With trade rumors swirling before he was traded to New Orleans, Cousins got the Jahlil Okafor treatment on the All-Star stage, playing just two minutes early in the game. He made a fairly deep 3 but missed his two other attempts from beyond the arc.
