The All-Star Game has notoriously lacked defense, making it a lite version of the 3-point and dunk contests that took place on Saturday. The winning team has eclipsed 150 points in four of the last five games. Team LeBron defeated Team Stephen Curry in 2018 in the first year of the new captains format.
