 Kevin Durant scored 30 points, MVP Chris Paul had 20 points and 15 assists, and the Western Conference beat the East 143-138 on Sunday night in the NBA All-Star Game.

Blake Griffin finished with 19 points, and Kobe Bryant blocked LeBron James twice in the final minutes, joining Paul to turn the West's victory into something of an L.A. story.

James scored 19 points but shot only 7 of 18 after having no shooting troubles during the latter part of the season's first half. Carmelo Anthony led the East with 26 points and 12 rebounds.
