    • The smallest player of the match, Nate Archibald, helped the East team to win and himself to get the MVP.
    • With seven minutes left in the fourth quarter, East won by 14 (113-99), but Dennis Johnson and Paul Westphal made a final comeback attempt for the West.
    • Then, appeared Celtics point guard Archibald. He took the control of the game, and the Western team never was closer than three points.
    • On the eve of the game, West coach John McLeod had a clear strategy to follow: “I want everybody to play the same minutes. All the players are All-Stars and ought to get an equal chance to participate in a game such as this.” Looking at the box score it’s clear he made his promise.
    • MVP: Nate Archibald (East)
