Biggest winners and losers from thrilling finish

CHICAGO — When Giannis Antetokounmpo initially selected his team of NBA All-Stars, the narrative was how outmatched his group would be against LeBron James, who had his MVP caliber teammate Anthony Davis, the league’s leading scorer in James Harden and one of the best up-and-coming players in Luka Doncic.

Early on, that narrative held. Then Antetokounmpo opted to do what he does best: Carry a team. His second quarter outburst — scoring 20 of his 25 first-half points — put Team LeBron up against the wall.

Then as things heated up in the second half — with a new scoring format — it was James’ team that found a way to muscle out a victory in a down-to-the-wire thriller.

Here’s a look at the biggest winners and losers from Sunday night’s game. 

Winner — Anthony Davis: The hometown kid had Team LeBron worried after he bricked his first free throw with the game on the line. But Davis nailed the game-winner on his second attempt to secure a 157-155 victory over Team Giannis and become the game’s hero in his native Chicago. Davis finished with 19 points and nine rebounds.
