NBA All-Star Game 2015: The Biggest Stars and Slams

Russell Westbrook, LeBron James and Bill Clinton all drew applause.

— -- The stars shined brightly at the NBA's All-Star Game.

Russell Westbrook led all players with 41 points -- one shy of Wilt Chamberlain’s All-Star Game record, leading the Western Conference past the East 163-158 Sunday. The Oklahoma City Thunder guard scored 27 points by halftime, and added a huge dunk in the third quarter.

LeBron James of the East also starred, moving into second place on all-time All-Star Game scoring list, passing Michael Jordan. James finished with 30 points.

Golden State Warriors standout Stephen Curry showed his superstar talent, cutting through the lane and sinking an off-balance shot.

Entertainment and political figures also drew attention. Former President Bill Clinton -- who received heavy applause from the Madison Square Garden crowd -- was seen chatting courtside with NBA legend Dikembe Mutombo.

Nicki Minaj was also on hand, watching the action and performing at halftime with Ariana Grande.

No game is complete without the mascots.
