- Following the 2016 NBA All-Star Game style, a lot of records happened again: most points in a half (both teams), most points in a quarter, most field goals made, and most assists in a quarter and half (single team and both teams) in a no-defense exhibition game.
- Russell Westbrook (19 points in 11 minutes) came from the bench in the first quarter ready to get his third MVP trophy.
- The highest scorers in the first half were Pelicans Anthony Davis (22 points) and Lebron James (20) along with Giannis Antetokounmpo (16) in the Eastern Conference team.
- In the second half, leaded by Antetokounmpo, the East took back the lead, but 5 almost consecutive 3-pointers by Russell Westbrook between the third and fourth quarters sealed the game.
- Westbrook had a great game with a stunning performance, but the MVP honor went to Anthony Davis who broke Wilt Chamberlain all-time NBA All-Star Game scoring record with 52 points and also most points scored in a quarter (20) and in a half (30).
- Kevin Durant made a triple-double (21 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists); he became the fourth player in the NBA All-Star Game history to achieve this record.
- The Warriors are the last team to be represented with 4 players in the NBA All-Star Game.
- DeMarcus Cousins only played 2 minutes because he was on the verge of being traded to New Orleans Pelicans.
- MVP: Anthony Davis (West)
