Third: West 117, East 100

Kobe Bryant dunked on LeBron James on a breakaway in the opening minutes of the third quarter. He didn’t take anything for granted and James didn’t let him have a free one. Moments later, Bryant drilled a 3-pointer for his 30th point. Derrick Rose was the fastest player on the court when Westbrook wasn’t out there at the same time. Incredible displays of fast-twitch muscle fibers whenever they had the ball in their hands. This looked very much Bryant’s game, however. He scored 34 points after three quarters. The Celtics’ foursome and the Miami Heat’s trio were afterthoughts going into the fourth.
