2012 NBA All-Star Game: Andre Iguodala Scores 12 In Eastern Conference Loss

The Eastern Conference rallied late to pull within one point of the Western Conference in the final minute of the 2012 NBA All-Star Game. Ultimately, a 19-point halftime deficit was too much to overcome, however. That, and 36 points on the night from Kevin Durant. Final Score: 151-149, Western Conference All-Stars.

Andre Iguodala made the most of his 14 minutes on the court, scoring 12 points and picking up four rebounds, two assists, a steal, a block, and a turnover. More importantly, he was able to add a little more excitement to the night with a one-handed flush in the first half.

Deron Williams went for 4-for-7 from long range on the night, but missed a late 3-point attempt that would have given the East the lead on their final shot of the game. The East rebounded the miss, but LeBron James turned the ball over to Blake Griffin on a misguided pass.

Despite the play, James was the best player on the East squad on Sunday night, scoring 36 and picking up seven rebounds and six assists. He also went 6-for-8 from 3-point land, including this pretty crossover and step-back shot:

Durant's 36 led the West, topping Kobe's 27 and Blake Griffin's 22-point efforts. For the effort, the Oklahoma City Thunder star was awarded MVP honors. Dwyane Wade recorded a triple-double on the night, with 24 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists.
