NEW ORLEANS, La. (AP) – The Cavs’ Kyrie Irving rewarded NBA fans’ judgment and offered a glimpse of how good he can be when surrounded by a good team.

Irving was selected the All-Star game most valuable player Sunday night after scoring 31 points, racking up 14 assists and playing with the energy required to help the Eastern Conference squad overcome an 18-point hole en route to a 163-155 victory in the highest-scoring game in the event’s history.

Irving missed only three of the 17 shots he attempted, and all of those were from 3-point range, where he went 3 for 6.

LeBron James had 22 points, seven rebounds and seven assists for the winners, who trailed by 18 at one point.

Eastern Conference coach Frank Vogel says Irving’s performance is a reminder that while winning is important, players shouldn’t be judged too heavily by the records of the teams for which they play.

The Cavaliers are 20-33 at the All-Star break, 11th in the Eastern Conference.
