Kevin Durant Scores 36 Points, Wins 2012 NBA All-Star Game MVP Award

Kevin Durant made the All-Star game look like a typical night for himself as he scored 36 points on 14-of-25 shooting on the night. For his effort Durant was named the MVP in Sunday night's game as the West held off a second half rally by the Eastern Conference team to win 152-149.

To go along with his game-high 36 points, Durant also had seven rebounds, three assists and three steals. Durant had 21 first half points and was quiet down the stretch, but his 36 points tied LeBron James for the game-high.

Durant's teammate Russell Westbrook also had a good night by scoring 21 points and five rebounds, two steals and two assists, but 17 of those game during the first half.

The MVP award was Durant's first off his career.
