The 2020 NBA All-Star game was bongos, thanks to the usage of the “Elam Ending”.  The what? 

According to it’s definition:
Quote
The NBA will use a form of the “Elam Ending” during Sunday's All-Star Game at the United Center. Elam's original idea, which is used in the summertime The Basketball Tournament, turns off the game clock with four minutes remaining and adds 7 points to the leading team's score to determine the target final score.

Final score:  Team Giannis (West team) defeated Team LeBron (East team) 157-155.  All-Star MVP was Kawhi Leonard.

The Raptors Pascal Siakam had 15 points & 8 rebounds, while Kyle Lowry accumulated 13 pts., & 8 assists.
