Kyrie Irving stole the show, but here are the Top 10 plays from the 2014 NBA All-Star Game (video)
The stars and the best of the best were out in full force on Sunday night at the 2014 NBA All-Star Game in New Orleans, but off them all, Cleveland Cavaliers guard Kyrie Irving shone the brightest. Scoring 31 points on 14-fo-17 shooting along with dishing out 14 assists, Irving was named the MVP of the NBA’s annual showcase of superstars, leading the Eastern Conference 163-155 shootout win over the Western Conference.
Irving took to Twitter shortly after the game to thank everyone involved with the magical evening.
What an experience!! Blessed and honored I could be out there with all the great players and play for fans everywhere. #thankyou

Above are what the NBA has deemed to be the Top 10 plays from the offensive showcase, and of course it features the usual array of dunks, dishes, oops and ahhs. LeBron James, John Wall and the lethal partnership of teammates Chris Paul and Blake Griffin all figure prominently in the rundown. But in the end, it was Kyrie Irving’s night.
