EAST 98, WEST 93 (OT), at Madison Square Garden
MVP: Bob Cousy
In the first All-Star Game at Madison Square Garden, it was a Celtic -- not a Knick -- who took the spotlight. Bob Cousy piled up 20 points, 11 rebounds and four assists as the East outscored the West 14-9 in overtime to clinch a 98-93 win.
The East was particularly dominant on the boards as four players had 10-plus rebounds, led by New York's Harry Gallatin (18 rebounds).
For the West, the Lakers duo of Jim Pollard (23 points) and George Mikan (18 points, nine rebounds) led the offense while Larry Foust of the Ft. Wayne Pistons finished with a team-best 15 rebounds.
