Stephen Curry shines bright in Team LeBron's NBA All-Star Game win

CLEVELAND — Golden State’s Steph Curry might not be Akron, Ohio’s favorite native NBA player. That title belongs to Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James.

But in Sunday’s All-Star Game, Curry’s star shone brightest with a phenomenal display of 3-point shooting.

Curry scored a game-high 50 points and set an NBA All-Star Game record with 16 made 3s. He also set a record for made 3s in a quarter with seven in the third in typical Steph fashion — deep 3s and turning around to go play defense before the ball went through the hoop.

Curry was named MVP of the All-Star Game for the first time in his career leading Team LeBron to a 163-160 victory over Team Durant. Curry received the newly redesigned Kobe Bryant All-Star MVP Award trophy that is an homage to Bryant’s jersey numbers, MVPs, All-Star MVPs, championships, and Finals MVPs.
