NBA All-Star Game 2024 final score, results: Damian Lillard leads East past West in record-breaking fashion | Sporting News United Kingdom

The 2024 NBA All-Star Game made history.

The NBA reverted to the original East vs. West format with four 12-minute quarters, looking to bring some purity back to the world’s greatest pickup game.

The format didn’t change much, as the East’s 211-186 win represents the highest-scoring All-Star Game in NBA history. No team had ever crossed the 200-point threshold and the 397 points combined were 23 more than the previous record set back in 2017. The East’s 42 made 3-pointers also set an All-Star Game record.

Damian Lillard led the charge for the East, scoring 39 points on 11 3-pointers to take home the Kobe Bryant All-Star Game MVP trophy. Pacers hometown hero Tyrese Haliburton made a strong run at the MVP trophy, pouring in 32 points.

Karl-Anthony Towns racked up a big scoring total late in the game, finishing with 50 points to lead the West.

NBA All-Star Game results, highlights from 2024

Final score: East 211, West 186

10:51 p.m.: And your All-Star Game MVP goes to … Damian Lillard!

10:47 p.m.: The scoring barrage has ended with the East handling the West, 211-186.

Damian Lillard’s 39 points, Jaylen Brown’s 36 points and Tyrese Haliburton’s 32 points lead the East to victory. Karl-Anthony Towns quietly piled on 50 points for the West while Shai Gilgeous-Alexander finished with 31 points.

Lillard left us with the parting gift of another half-court shot.

10:43 p.m.: And we officially have the highest-scoring All-Star Game in NBA history. The East leads the West 203-108 with just over one minute remaining.

10:37 p.m.: Nikola Jokic and Luka Doncic are the two best friends that anyone could ever have.

10:36 p.m.: The East is running away with this game, leading the West 188-166 with 4:37 remaining. The East has set an All-Star Game record with 37 made 3-pointers.

10:30 p.m.: Stephen Curry breaks out Jamal Crawford’s classic double behind-the-back crossover!

10:26 p.m.: Before you could seemingly blink, Karl-Anthony Towns is up to 30 points off the bench for the West while Jaylen Brown has chipped in 26 points off the bench in the East. A quick moment for two of the game’s unsung heroes.

End of third quarter: East 160, West 136

10:12 p.m.: The East’s 3-point shooting has made this a lopsided event quickly. The East has made 33 3-pointers, just two shy of the all-time All-Star Game record set by Team LeBron in 2019.

Damian Lillard has 33 points on nine 3-pointers. Tyrese Haliburton has 24 points on eight 3-pointers. It feels like a battle between those two for All-Star Game MVP heading into the final quarter.

10:02 p.m.: DAMIAN LILLARD FROM 41 FEET!

10:01 p.m.: Luka Doncic was given a score of 47.8 by the Slam Dunk Contest judges for this attempt:

10:01 p.m.: LeBron James has jokes for the youngins on the West bench.

9:59 p.m.: The East is raining 3s. Damian Lillard, Tyrese Haliburton and Jayson Tatum have all made two triples apiece to extend the East’s lead over 20 points at 127-105.

9:56 p.m.: The King. Timeless.

Halftime: East 104, West 89

9:33 p.m.: The East built a comfortable first-half lead but the West is still in striking distance.

The East has six players in double-figures scoring. Damian Lillard’s 22 points lead the way followed by Tyrese Haliburton (18), Giannis Antetokounmpo, Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown, who all have 12 points. Stephen Curry is starting to heat up for the West with 12 points on four 3-pointers.

Defense is … nowhere to be found, as you would expect. But that’s not necessarily a bad thing!

9:31 p.m.: Luka Doncic wanted the 2-for-1, apparently.

9:30 p.m.: Damian Lillard is gunning for MVP, ladies and gentlemen. He’s up to a game-high 22 points as the East leads the West 99-84.

9:28 p.m.: Kevin Durant gets revenge on Damian Lillard by hitting him with what we’d like to call the “way too small” taunt — a level of disrespect lower than the regular “too small” taunt.

9:22 p.m.: Trae Young gets his former idol Kevin Durant with a nutmeg and a bucket!

9:14 p.m.: The East had an 11-0 run early in the second frame to break this one open, with Tyrese Maxey chipping in 10 quick points off the bench. The East leads the West 70-54.

End of first quarter: East 53, West 47

9:06 p.m.: One quarter down and the defense is starting to drop off. Both teams are shooting over 50 percent from the field as the East takes a 53-47 lead over the West. The East is hot from 3-point range, knocking down 13 triples compared to the West’s five.

9:04 p.m.: Stephen Curry meets Paolo Banchero at the rim and comes up with a block! Then Devin Booker does his best Patrick Mahomes impression and finds Anthony Edwards deep for a full-court pass and layup.

8:58 p.m.: Everyone’s doing a little bit of scoring in this one early on. While Tyrese Haliburton’s 15 points still lead the East, the West has five players with at least six points. Kevin Durant and Shai Gilgeous-Alexander have seven points apiece as the East leads the West 43-41 with 2:22 to play in the first.

8:55 p.m.: LeBron James delivers one of his signature tomahawk dunks in transition and Damian Lillard responds with one of his signature logo 3-pointers going the other way. The best in the league doing what they do best.

8:46 p.m.: Tyrese Haliburton is engulfed in flames. The Pacers star is right at home, burying five 3-pointers in a row for 15 quick points. He’s drawing double teams four minutes into the All-Star Game as the East jumps out to a 25-22 lead over the West.

8:43 p.m.: We’re underway as Giannis Antetokounmpo finds Jayson Tatum in the corner for a 3-pointer to kick things off.

Pregame

8:35 p.m.: Hang tight, NBA fans. Tip-off is almost here with introductions underway. Meet your East and West All-Stars!

8:19 p.m.: While you wait for tip-off, take a trip down memory lane as LeBron James gets set to play in his 20th NBA All-Star Game.

7:25 p.m.: Shaquille O’Neal wants Tyrese Haliburton to play selfishly and go for All-Star Game MVP in his team’s home city.

7:00 p.m.: Giannis Antetokounmpo is getting a little help from his son as he warms up for the All-Star Game.
