The West All-Stars edged out their East counterparts in record-setting fashion, 163-158, the highest-scoring All-Star Game in NBA history.

Oklahoma Thunder super guard Russell Westbrook was named MVP after delivering one of the finest performances ever in the annual event. He led all scorers with 41 points on 16-of-28 shooting, falling one-point shy of the All-Star Game scoring record set by Wilt Chamberlain back in 1962.

LeBron James led the Eastern Conference with 30 points and seven assists. He also passed Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (251 points) and Michael Jordan (262 points) to put himself in second place (278 points) on the All-Star Game's scoring list behind only Kobe Bryant (280 points). Hometown superstar Carmelo Anthony, on the other hand, finished with 14 points on a paltry 6-for-20 shooting.

And just like every other All-Star Game, this year's version didn't fall short in amazing highlights and must-see moments. We compiled the best of them below!
