St. Louis veteran Bob Pettit and Minneapolis rookie Elgin Baylor became the first players to tie for MVP honors as they led the West to a 124-108 triumph over the East at Detroit's Cobo Arena. Pettit outscored Baylor, 25-24, and outrebounded the rookie forward, 16-11, but the two divided the MVP ballots equally.

Cincinnati's Jack Twyman also contributed 18 points as the West won for the third time in nine games. Paul Arizin of Philadelphia led the East with 16 points, 1 more than Ken Sears of the New York Knicks.
