Duke fans got to see something that, if not unprecedented, was certainly unusual: three former Blue Devils started for the same team in the NBA All-Star Game.

Kyrie Irving, Jayson Tatum and Zion Williamson all started for Team Durant.

Tatum finished with 21, while Irving had 24 and Williamson, who appeared a bit nervous early, had 10 but also missed some dunks.

Toss in a spectacular dunk from Cassius Stanley in the halftime dunk contest and it was a pretty good night for Duke fans.

As usual, there was no defense - the teams combined for 320 points with Team LeBron winning 170-150.

Giannis Antetokounmpo was the MVP with 35 points on 16-16 from the floor. Stephen Curry shot 8-16 from three point range and finished with 28.
