Record Crowd of 108,713 Watch ASG
Wade had 28 points and won MVP honors, and the Eastern Conference edged the West 141-139 on Sunday night in the NBA All-Star Game.
"To be able to perform in front of a crowd like that, I know that. I know I can do it, I’ve done it before," Wade said. "So just to be able to put on a show like that and to get the win, and to make key plays down the stretch was what I like."
The crowd of 108,713, packed with the usual celebrities and athletes the NBA All-Star Game always attracts, watched Dallas native Chris Bosh make the winning free throws with 5 seconds left. The West had a chance to win it, but Carmelo Anthony’s 3-point attempt came up short.
