1975 All-Star Game recap


Posted Feb 27 2013 1:54PM

EAST 108, WEST 102, at Veterans Memorial Coliseum (Phoenix)
ATTENDANCE: 12,885
MVP: Walt Frazier

By 1975, Walt "Clyde" Frazier had already established himself as one of the top guards of the decade and one of the best all-time. With many All-NBA and All-Defensive team accolades already to his name, he added one more accomplishment: MVP of the 1975 All-Star Game. Frazier scored 30 points (on 10-for-17 shooting) and added five rebounds and four steals as the East topped the West 108-102 at Phoenix's Veterans Memorial Coliseum.

While the West shot the ball poorly (39.1 percent) compared to the East (47.6 percent), it stayed in the game thanks to the scoring tandem of Rick Barry and Tiny Archibald. Barry scored 22 points with eight assists and eight steals while Archibald finished with 27 points on 10-for-15 shooting.
