Howard finished the game with just five points in 21 total minutes of play. He was two for four from the field and hit 1 free throw, but added seven rebounds and one assist. He was the low scorer among the Eastern Conference starters who were led by LeBron James And Amare Stoudemire who each tallied 29 points. Truly though the night belonged to Laker guard Kobe Bryant, as he put on a show on his home court scoring 37 points ans capturing the game’s MVP award. It is Bryant’s fourth All-Star Game MVP award, which ties him for 1st all time with Hall of Famer Bob Pettit.
