In front of music royalty in Cleveland, Lebron James continued his NBA All-Star Game winning streak.
Capturing his team to a thrilling 163-160 victory over Team Durant, the 37-year-old Laker led his side to victory.
In the end, it was Steph Curry's magic that led to LeBron's fifth consecutive All-Star victory as captain, when he caught fire from beyond the arc.
Throughout the game, Curry hit an impressive 16 of 27 three-point attempts en route to winning MVP honors.
The action began in typical All-Star showdown fashion, with players from both teams getting uncontested runs to the rim and showing off their dunking skills.
While Giannis Antetokounmpo and Ja Morant completed some outrageous alley-oops in the NBA All-Star game, James wasn't overshadowed.
Curry, however, was the one to make the crowd sing, finding all the right notes from outside the three-point line.
CURRY SCOOPS MVP AWARD
With less than a quarter of the contest left, he had already broken the All-Star record of thirteen 3-pointers.
The two teams remained close right up to the buzzer, but it was LeBron's night as he made it five-from-five in his role as captain.
A successful three-point attempt from Downtown by James with scores tied at 160-160 sent the former home crowd into a frenzy.
Adele and her boyfriend Rich Paul took in the drama from the VIP seats, accompanied by the UK pop royalty.
