The moments that mattered from the 2018 NBA All-Star Game

The moments that mattered from the 2018 NBA All-Star Game

LOS ANGELES — Maybe we didn’t get a televised draft, but we did get a (mostly) legitimately competitive All-Star Game at Staples Center on Sunday. The 2018 edition of the game featured an evident uptick in energy (and even some intermittent defensive intensity!), remained close throughout and went down to the final seconds, with LeBron James and Kevin Durant trapping Stephen Curry at the 3-point arc to prevent one last shot from getting away, and helping Team LeBron to come away with a 148-145 win, with James (29 points, 10 rebounds, eight assists, the go-ahead layup with 34 seconds left) winning his third All-Star Game MVP award.

Ultimately, though, the NBA All-Star Game is never really about the final score; it’s about the moments that stand out, for better or for worse. Here, then, are the moments that mattered in the 2018 NBA All-Star Game.

C.R.E.A.M.: When the question is, “How do we crank up the level of competition?” the answer is, “Dig deep into your pockets, gentlemen.”

Money well spent, right?

Killing me softly with this song: May we never speak of Fergie’s rendition of the national anthem again.

• EXCEPTION! Unless we’re going to talk about Draymond Green’s immediate physical response to it …

… or Stephen Curry’s mid-game online reaction:

Best teammate: Shouts out to Anthony Davis.

Best former teammates (tied): Good job making up, guys. All-Star Weekend is not about beef. It is about love.
