Chris Paul Wins 2013 NBA All-Star Game MVP

Los Angeles Clippers point guard Chris Paul earned MVP honors for his performance during the 2013 NBA All-Star Game as he helped lead the Western Conference all-stars to a 143-138 victory over the Eastern Conference.

Paul finished the night with an impressive statline of 20-points, 15 assists and four steals. He became the first Clippers player to win a NBA All-Star Game MVP award.

Not only did he mark a first for the Clippers, but Paul was able to put together one of the most impressive all-star game performances in NBA history as he became just the third player to ever score 20-points and tally 15 assists in an all-star game. The other two players to reach the milestone were Magic Johnson and Isiah Thomas.

Congratulations to Paul and the Western Conference for their all-star game achievements.

Now, it is time to focus on the second-half of the 2012-13 NBA season and watch teams make their runs at the NBA Championship.
