NBA All-Star Game 2012 Final Score: West Wins Squeaker 152-149

The West held on to win the 2012 NBA All-Star Game in Orlando by the score 152-149 despite a spirited comeback from 21 down by the East. Kevin Durant led the West with 36 points, and Kobe Bryant followed with 27. LeBron James had 36 for the East, as well. Dwyane Wade registered the All-Star Game's third ever triple-double with 24 points, 10 assists and 10 rebounds.

The last four minutes of the game were wild and competitive. LeBron hit two monster three-pointers late, and missed a third that would have set the world on collapsing unto itself. But he had a bad turnover with the East down three in the closing seconds. He tried to hit Wade with a cross-court pass after an offensive rebound by Deron Williams, but saw the ball intercepted.

That play came shortly after Wade mishandled an outlet pass. Here's a clip with both turnovers.

Durant won the MVP award.
