As usual, the NBA All-Star Game is all-offense and no-defense and thus a high-scoring affair. But after all, it is for fun and for the fans.

The West won 148-143 over the East at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

Kobe Bryant won his record-tying fourth All-Star Game MVP award. In front of his homecourt fans, he scored 37 points and grabbed 14 rebounds outplaying LeBron James’ triple-double of 29 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists.

Bryant was helped out in the scoring column by Oklahoma City star Kevin Durant who scored 34 points.

Amare Stoudemire of the New York Knicks supported James by also scoring 29 points.

Couples leads Northern Trust tourney

Fred Couples (file photo)

Riviera Golf Club is one of Fred Couples’ favorite courses.

The 51-year-old started his round of golf with an eagle putt from nearly 100 feet, threw in several 30-foot birdie putts and wound up with a 5-under-par 66 to take the lead in the Northern Trust Open in Los Angeles.

The popular Couples is a two-time winner at Riviera. He enjoys playing the course so much that he made plans to play in this PGA Tour event instead of defending his title in Florida on the Champions Tour, the ACE Group Classic.

Couples is at 8-under 134 and is two shots ahead of J.B. Holmes and John Senden.
