LOS ANGELES (AP) – Kobe Bryant won his record-tying fourth All-Star game MVP award to the delight of his hometown fans, scoring 37 points and propelling the West to a 148-143 victory over the East in the NBA’s midseason showcase on Sunday night.

The Los Angeles Lakers’ veteran guard put on another show among stars at the 60th All-Star game, also grabbing 14 rebounds and overcoming LeBron James’ triple-double for the East.

Clearly pushing for another trophy against an East roster stacked with rival Celtics and Heat, Bryant matched Bob Pettit’s NBA record with his fourth MVP award in just 10 years.

James had 29 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists for the East, but Miami teammate Dwyane Wade scored 14 points before limping off in the third quarter.
