It was the fourth quarter of the All-Star Game, and a few fans started yelling loudly enough for DeAndre Jordan to hear them from his spot on the Western Conference bench.Defense was in short supply Sunday night during the NBA's showcase game, one where Anthony Davis smashed a 55-year-old record with 52 points and the Western Conference beat the Eastern Conference 192-182 .The game also established records for total points (384), most field goals (162), most assists (103), most assists by one team (West with 60), most points in one quarter (101, first) and so on.Kerr's point: How All-Star games are played isn't up to the coaches, but rather it'll be the players who decide if they want defense back.East guard Kyrie Irving expects that the game will change.Like many, he said avoiding injury in the All-Star Game is paramount and that's certainly understandable. Stevens said it was discussed in the fourth quarter, with hopes of putting the East in position to win the game.
