With all the NBA’s best players playing on one court for the 2016 NBA All-Star Game, it was Thunder superstars Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook who shined brightest inside of the Air Canada Centre in Toronto.

Westbrook was named MVP for the second straight season after he totaled a team-high 31 points to go with eight rebounds five assists and five steals. He was the most aggressive player on the court throughout the 22 minutes he played, and his night was highlighted by his seven made three-pointers. Westbrook becomes the first player since Bob Pettit in 1958 to win the MVP in back-to-back seasons.

Durant had a tremendous night as well with 23 points, seven assists and five rebounds as the West took down the East 196-173.
