Anthony Davis had a game to remember.

The four-time All-Star broke Wilt Chamberlain’s record — 42 points in 1962 — for most points scored in an NBA All-Star game. Davis had 52 points and 10 rebounds to lead the Western Conference to 192-182 victory over the Eastern Conference at the Smoothie King Center in New Orleans.

That wasn’t the only record that was broken as Sunday’s game featured the most combined points in All-Star history.

Davis, the No. 1 pick in the 2012 draft, finished the game making 26 of 39 shots and scored 20 points in the fourth quarter and became the first player since Kobe Bryant (2011) to win MVP honors on his home floor.

“The next one I’m going to try to do (break) is 100 points,” Davis told reporters referencing Chamberlain’s 100-point game.

Kevin Durant had a triple-double with 21 points, 10 rebounds, and 10 assists and became just the fourth person to do so in an All-Star game. Russell Westbrook had 41 points and Stephen Curry added 21 points for the West.

Giannis Antetokounmpo had 30 points to lead the East. LeBron James scored 23 — including a 3-pointer from midcourt — as he showed up Curry after he missed a number of times during an impromptu contest to raise money for the Sager Strong foundation.

Kyrie Irving was right behind with 22 points and has a game-high 14 assists. Isaiah Thomas added 20 and Kyle Lowry chipped in with 19 points.

The next All-Star Game is Feb. 18, 2018, in Los Angeles, as it hosts All-Star weekend for a record sixth time.

Here are some of the top plays from the game.
