1991 All-Star Game recap


Posted Feb 27 2013 1:41PM

EAST 116, WEST 114, at Charlotte Coliseum
ATTENDANCE: 23,530
MVP: Charles Barkley

The East used a 45-35 second quarter -- and 26 points from Chicago's Michael Jordan, playing back in his home state -- to hold on for the win. Philadelphia's Charles Barkley pulled down 22 rebounds and added 17 points to earn MVP honors in what was his final All-Star Game as a Sixer.

Washington's Bernard King made an All-Star comeback after blowing out his knee with the Knicks almost six years earlier. King started the game and scored eight points in 26 minutes of play, his first in an All-Star game since 1985.

One year after Larry Bird would make his final All-Star appearance, the other two key cogs of Boston's title-contending teams of the 1980s made their final All-Star Game visit. Kevin McHale (two points, three rebounds) and Robert Parish (two points, four rebounds), both reserves for the East, played a combined 19 minutes.

Dee Brown provided the highlight for Boston at All-Star Weekend as he became the first Celtic to win the Slam Dunk Contest. Chicago sharpshooter Craig Hodges won his second of three consecutive 3-Point Shootout titles.
