NBA All-Star Game: East 109 - West 97

The All Star Game came back to the Boston Garden. The stars were Red Auerbach (coaching) and Bob Cousy (who marked the rhythm of the game).
It was the fifth victory of the East. The longest shot in the history of the All Star Game was made in this game by Bill Sharman. Taking a rebound early in the second quarter, he dribbled towards the corner to escape the taller rivals and, on pivoting, he throw an awful pass to Cousy that somehow fell through the basket without even touching the rim or backboard!

Nat Clifton became the oldest player to debut in the All-Star Game with 34 years and 94 days.

MVP: Bob Cousy (East)
