NBA All-Star Game 2012 Final Score: West Team Wins 152-149, Dirk Nowitzki Scores Seven Points

Dirk Nowitzki scored only seven points in the West team's 152-149 win, and all of those were in the second half. The West team had a commanding lead in the first half, but as usual in NBA All-Star games there was a comeback and the East team nearly won. The East had a triple-double from Dwayne Wade who had 24 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists, and LeBron James had 36 points.

James hit two big three-pointers to get the East back in this game, but he could not connect on his third and then James turned the ball over with a few seconds left and did not have a chance to tie the game.

The West was lead by Kevin Durant who scored 36 points and was named the game's MVP.
