|Out of the following, who had the best free throw percentage in the game?|
Shaquille O'Neal. Like I always say, Shaq is now a serious threat from the free throw line. Shaq 3-5, Kobe 3-6, Nash 0-1, Miller, 0-1.
|Which of the following players did not airball?|

Tim Duncan 19pts 15 reb,

Jason Kidd 11pts, 10 assists.
|Who attempted the most three-pointers without making any?|
Pierce &Paul Pierce. Paul Pierce was 0-5.
|Which bench player scored the most points?|

Gary Payton. Tim Duncan was rejected twice by O'Neal, while attempting a dunk. In the first quarter, Kobe Bryant was rejected while doing a layup, as was Steve Francis during the fourth quarter.
|Who was not part of the "quad-towers"?|
Dirk Nowitzki. Just before the end of the second quarter, Rick Adelmen substituted the most imposing lineup possible. At centre Yao Ming, power forward Shaquille O'Neal, small forward Tim Duncan, and shooting guard Kevin Garnett. This line proved very effected, they were on a 10-0 run.
|Who had the most turnovers?|
Allen Iverson. AI had 6 turnovers.
|How many points did Michael Jordan have in the fourth quarter?|
8. Jordan started to heat up in the fourth quarter scoring 8pts. Too bad those eight points came with lots of attempts and two of his shots blocked.
|Which player scored the 100th point for the east?|
Allen Iverson. Scores tied at 97, Iverson faked a three, drove and was fouled. The 100th point came from a free throw.
|What player tied the game at 100 for the West?|
Shaquille O'Neal. Shaquille O'Neal went one-on-one with Brad Miller, dunking right over him and converting a free throw.
|In the first overtime, Ben Wallace was replaced by who?|
Michael Jordan. Ben Wallace, being 6-9 is already small compared to Shaquille O'Neal, and to have all small guys playing with a full squad, seemed pretty silly, but we all know what MJ did in the final seconds.
|Who took the last shot of the entire game?|
Paul Pierce. Pierce shot from just inside the half way line and nearly got it in. Too bad it, as wouldn't have made a difference if he got it in or not.
