LeBron James and Kyrie Irving represented the Cleveland Cavaliers in the NBA All-Star game in New Orleans won by the Western Conference, 192 to 182.

The pair were starters for the Eastern Conference and they combined for 45 points, 10 rebounds and 15 assists. James had 23 points on 10-of-17 shooting from the field, including 3-of-8 from behind the three-point line in 19 minutes. Irving was 8-of-12 from the field in 22 minutes, including 6-of-8 from behind the arc. Irving had seven rebounds and 14 assists to lead all players in that category. 

Irving finished second in the three-point shoot out on Saturday, losing to Eric Gordon in overtime. 

James played in his 13th-straight All-Star game to tie an NBA record. 

The third member of the 'Big 3', Kevin Love was unable to play as he had arthroscopic surgery on his knee last week and was replaced by Carmelo Anthony.

New Orleans Pelicans star Anthony Davis scored 52 points to set a new All-Star game record breaking the record of 42 points scored by Wilt Chamberlain in 1962 on his way to being named the game's MVP.
