Some of the other notable performances from last night's game:
*Evan Turner flirted with a triple double finishing with 16 points, 11 rebounds and 7 assists. Despite being the #2 pick in the draft last year, Turner failed to receive an invitation to last year's Rookie-Sophomore challenge. This year, he's proved to be a reliable bench performer for a much-improved 76ers team, and made the most of his appearance last night.

*Paul George finished second to Irving with 23 points and offered a glimpse at what people can expect in tonight's Slam Dunk Contest.

*John Wall set a record with 22 assists last year, and while he took a back seat to Irving this year, Wall still had his share of highlights including a dazzling array of dunks in the second half. The first overall pick in 2010 finished with 17 points, grabbed 6 rebounds and had 8 assists. He also had a pair of impressive blocks.

*Greg Monroe had 14 points and 8 rebounds a year ago as a reserve for the rookies. This year, as a starter for Team Shaq, he scored 19 points, grabbed a team-high 10 rebounds, tallied 4 assists and led all players with 5 steals. Monroe also had one of the highlights of the game, when he intercepted a self-pass by John Wall and turned it into two points the other way.
