EAST 100, WEST 91, at Madison Square Garden
MVP: Bill Sharman
Though he was listed as a reserve for the 1955 All-Star Game, Bill Sharman made an impact like a starter. Sharman scored 10 of his 15 points in the fourth quarter as the East pulled away from the West 100-91. He was named MVP.
Bob Cousy, Sharman's teammate on the Celtics, was also solid for the East as he notched 20 points, nine rebounds and five assists. For the West, the Lakers' Jim Pollard (17 points) and Vern Mikkelsen (16 points, nine rebounds) provided much of the offensive punch for a squad that shot 36.0 percent in the defeat.
