Philadelphia's Paul Arizin, a 10-time All-Star during his 10-year career, had his best All-Star Game in 1952, scoring 26 points on 9-for-13 shooting en route to winning MVP honors.

More than 10,000 fans turned out for the 1952 midseason showdown, which was held at the Boston Garden for the second straight time.

Overall, six of the 10 players on the East scored in double figures as the team made 49.4 percent of its shots.
