WEST 125, EAST 115, at Convention Hall (Philadelphia)
MVP: Wilt Chamberlain
As a rookie with the Warriors, Wilt Chamberlain dominated the NBA. It was no surprise, then, that he was the main attraction in the 1960 game held at the Convention Hall in Philadelphia.
Chamberlain put up 23 points and gathered 25 rebounds while shooting 9-for-20 from the field as he won the MVP in the East's 125-115 victory. His double-double was one of three on the East (Dolph Schayes of the Nationals and Willie Naulls of the Knicks recorded the others), which pulled away from the West with solid runs in the second and third quarters.
Elgin Baylor (25 points, 13 rebounds), Bob Pettit (11 points, 14 rebounds) and Jack Twyman (27 points) provided most of the offense for the West, which actually outshot the East 41.3 percent to 40.0 percent in the loss.
