C's trio helps East win 2010 All-Star Game

February, 14, 2010

DALLAS -- Boston's trio of All-Stars avoided injury, produced a solid showing, and emerged from Dallas as winners after the East posted a 141-139 triumph over the West in the 2010 All-Star Game before a record crowd of 108,713 at Cowboys Stadium.

Here's a quick recap of the exploits of Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce, and Rajon Rondo.

Garnett: Logged a little more than six minutes at the start of each half, making 2-of-4 shots for four points, while adding three rebounds, two assists, and a block in 12:43 of total action. Garnett spent time guarding Amare Stoudemire, something he could be doing much more of in the near future with whispers that the Cavaliers are closing in on a deal for the Western Conference's starting center.

Rondo: Rondo hit 2-of-3 shots for four points with five assists in 19 minutes of action. He found himself on the court in a crunch time lineup that featured LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Dwight Howard, and Chris Bosh (thought was replaced by Pierce on the final offensive possession).

Pierce: Pierce connected on 3-of-6 attempts, including a pair of 3-pointers -- appropriate for the 3-point champion -- to finish with eight points in 12 minutes.

Relive all the action in ESPN's All-Star chat.
