The Portland Trail Blazers were well-represented on All-Star Sunday, but Damian Lillard saved the best for last.

Lillard and Stephen Curry traded ridiculous deep shots for Team LeBron all night.

Despite the fireworks show, Giannis Antetokounmpo won All-Star Game Kobe Bryant MVP Award. Now, he did go 16/16 from the floor, including 3/3 from three, so I guess I get it.

Lillard finished with 32 points, which is both a career-high for him in the ASG and a record for a Trail Blazers player in the game.

Part of Dame’s 32 was the shot that ended the game.

Even Paul George admitted that his criticism of Lillard a few years ago was misguided. Respect, PG.

Team LeBron won all four quarters, which translated to $1.25 million for the Thurgood Marshall College Fund. Team Durant was still given $500,000 for the United Negro College Fund.

LeBron James is now 4-0 as an All-Star captain since the NBA changed the format for how the All-Star game teams are selected.
