Kyle Korver who became the first Creighton Bluejay in 40 years to be selected to the NBA All-Star game, finished second in scoring for the Eastern Conference All-Stars behind Cleveland’s LeBron James. Korver scored 21 points in their 163-158 loss on Sunday night at Madison Square Garden. James had 30 points.
Korver played 16 minutes off the bench and was 7 of 13 from the field…all but one of his attempts came from three-point range. Korver is the NBA leader in 3FG% (.528), 3FGM (160).
Korver, who turns 34 next month, is the fourth-oldest player to make his first All-Star appearance. He’s the first former Creighton star to make the game since Paul Silas, then with the Boston Celtics, had six points and four steals in the 1975 All-Star game.
