Miami Heat super star LeBron James is the defending NBA All-Star Game MVP and he is off to a great start in Houston. During the night’s first half, James threw down two impressive alley-oops, but it wasn’t enough for the Eastern All-Stars as they entered halftime trailing the West squad by four points. For the West, Kevin Durant was the star scoring 19 points — which left him as the leading scorer in the first half.

While LeBron only scored 10 points in the first half, don’t be surprised to see the Heat star take over in the second half and put on a show.

If LeBron can add a few more highlight dunks to the reel for tonight’s game, we can call it a successful outing.

Here is video of LeBron’s two first half alley-oop finishes:

Be sure to stay tuned. There is a lot more where that came from.
