Giannis named MVP, helps Team LeBron win All-Star Game

(AP) -- Giannis Antetokounmpo was a perfect 16-16 from the field scoring a game-high 35 points in the 2021 All-Star Game helping Team LeBron beat Team Durant 170-150. Giannis was given the Kobe Bryant MVP Award for his efforts.

The Greek Freak has averaged more than 28 points per game in his first five All-Star Games which is an NBA record. 

In the midst of a pandemic, the NBA staged the game in a mostly empty arena in downtown Atlanta. But the result was familiar. LeBron James is now 4-0 as a captain, blowing away Kevin Durant's squad.
