NBA All Star Game 2022 was won 163-160 by Team LeBron James, dragged by Steph Curry. At the end of the first half there were already eight triples to target and in the second half the No. 30 of the Warriors smashed the record of nine long-distance baskets held by Paul George.
In fact, there are 50 points for him with 16 triples on target. A show. Team LeBron found themselves having to score one point more than Team Durant with final odds set at 163. At that point James's team tried to make way for Curry to hunt for the all-time scorer record at the All-Star Game, but Steph missed his last six shots.
In the end, LeBron James took care of scoring a basket by falling back, making the arena in Cleveland explode with joy. During the halftime ceremony, Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar were on the pitch.
Laureus Awards: Brady, Dressel, Djokovic, Ledecky, McKeon The names of all the nominees for the World Sports Awards, the Oscars of sport, have been announced. Six tennis players stand out among the nominees, and above all the name of Novak Djokovic.

The Serbian will return to the field at the ATP 500 in Dubai. The other nominees for this award are Max Verstappen (winner of the F1 world championship), Tom Brady (historic quarterback who at 44 this year will bid farewell to American football after 22 years), Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski, the American swimmer.
