Ronald Martinez/Getty Images(ORLANDO) — Oklahoma City Thunder forward Kevin Durant scored 36 points, grabbed seven rebounds and dished out three assists, leading the Western Conference All-Stars to a 152-149 victory over the Eastern Conference. 

Durant was named MVP.

“I was just being myself,” Durant said. “It’s my third year, but I feel like I belong now. Everybody was out there feeding me the ball. It’s not just me. These guys here, they sacrifice some shots for guys in this all-star game. It feels good to become the MVP.”

Lakers guard Kobe Bryant had a big night as well. He scored 27 points, which vaulted him past Michael Jordan as the all-time scoring leader in All-Star Game history.
