    [event_details 4114]

    • It was a game with high scores. There were 6 players with 16 or more points.
    • The first half was decisive for East, with a 15 points advantage (51-36). West commanded the second half (55-45), but it wasn’t enough to win.
    • Allen Iverson (who had been number 1 in the draft) was named MVP, with 19 points and 9 assists. He was one of the key factors for the East victory, but probably Kobe Bryant (with 31 points and 8 assists for the West) was better still a little better.

    • In the West team, neither Stephon Marbury nor Samaki Walker could play because of injuries.
