2024 NBA All-Star Game: East 211, West 186: “ASG is pretty dumb“

No, the headline isn’t wrong and your eyes aren’t lying to you.

The Eastern Conference won the 73rd All-Star Game by dumping more than 200 points on their foes from the Western Conference—something that had not been done before—on their way to finishing Sunday’s mid-season marquee event with a 211-186 win in the capper of the 2024 NBA All-Star Weekend.

Back in 2016, when the ASG was still played as a battle of conferences, it took Russell Westbrook a Western Conference-leading 23 FGA and 31 points to lift his squad to victory over the East, 196-173.
