The 2022 NBA All-Star festivities wrapped up in Cleveland on Monday (AEST), with Golden State's Steph Curry putting on a breathtaking shooting clinic in a tight win.

With the players selected by their 'captains', Team LeBron aimed to make it five from five in the new draft-style format of the All-Star game.

Teaming up with dominant superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo, James' team defeated Team Durant 163 - 160. 

As usual, the greatest shooter of all time led from the front with an All-Star game record 16 three-pointers made!

Curry finished the game as MVP with 50 points. Cleveland's hometown hero LeBron was pivotal with 24 points himself, including the game-winning basket.


Over on Team Durant, 76ers star Joel Embiid amassed a team-high 36 points.  

All proceeds went towards a charity of the captain's choice, placing the finishing touches on the All-Star break.

At half time, the NBA honoured its Top 75 players ever for the 75th NBA season. Greats of the sport, including Michael Jordan, Jerry West, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and more were in attendance together repping the special 75th Anniversary jackets.

This edition advertised a flurry of Australian talent.

Josh Giddey (OKC Thunder) featured in both the Rising Stars game and the Skills Challenge. NBA draft prospect Dyson Daniels showed what he is capable as a wildcard player in the Rising Stars, while national hero Patty Mills (Brooklyn Nets) competed in the Three-Point contest.

On All-Star Saturday Night, Minnesota's Karl Anthony Towns was the first centre to win the Three-Point Champion, while New York's Obi Toppin was crowned the Dunk Champion.
