1962 All-Star Game recap


Posted Feb 27 2013 2:37PM

WEST 150, EAST 130, at Kiel Auditorium (St. Louis)
ATTENDANCE: 15,112
MVP: Bob Pettit

Though Wilt Chamberlain dominated for the East in the 1962 All-Star Game with a 42-point, 24-rebound performance, he wasn't big enough to overcome the West's scoring punch.

Led by Bob Pettit's 25 points and 27 rebounds and solid games from Elgin Baylor and Oscar Robertson, the East rolled to a 150-130 victory. Pettit, who was named MVP, was 10-for-20 from the field and his 27 rebounds set an all-time mark for the All-Star Game.

Baylor, who scored 32, tortured the West around the basket. Three other players -- Robertson (26 points, 13 rebounds, seven assists), Bob Cousy (11 points, six rebounds, eight assists) and Hal Greer (eight points, 10 rebounds, nine assists) -- flirted with triple-doubles as the All-Star Game returned to Kiel Auditorium in St. Louis for the first time since 1958.
