    Holy Cow! I did not watch but that score, obviously defense was not a priority.....as usual.

    Loved every second of it. Why would anyone want to see defense in an All Star Game?

    It is what it is. I have no problem with it. However, it would be cool to see the game played at a playoff-caliber level, just because the basketball would be insane.

    I can't see that happening in an All Star Game. Too much at stake. Someone gets hurt and then the overreaction police will ban the game.

    My only disappointment was in the shooting. Thought these guys could shoot better than 38% from three with most shots being unguarded. Some of the dunks were great, I would've liked to see Curry pull off some Globetrotter like moves. Disclaimer: I had to turn the game off at half since it was Valentine's Day, so if Curry did anything spectacular in the second half, I missed it.

    I just can't watch much of these games. I watched about one quarter.

    I loved every second of it. Like they said in pregame, it is the best athletes in the world showing off their athleticism. Great show.

    I'm with Clyde on this one. I lasted for about one quarter. That was more like a Harlem Globetrotters audition than any kind of a basketball game. Or maybe I should say it was a Washington Generals audition because that is how they all played defense. I don't expect hard-nosed defense but a little effort at some point would be nice

    About as entertaining as the Westminster Dog Show. Those canines are showing off their best, too.

    When it's close in the 4th they usually turn it on for about 4-5 minutes which is fun. Sadly it didn't get to that point. It's the best of the major sports All-Star games which isn't saying much.
