Team Giannis' Kemba Walker was one of the key performers at the NBA All-Star game 2020. The Boston Celtics star combined well with his fellow teammates Trae Young and Pascal Siakam to put in a good shift at both ends of the game. However, Kemba Walker made pulled-off a neat nutmeg on LeBron James.
After Trae Young made the headlines for his outrageous half-court buzzer-beater in the first half, Kemba Walker produced a fine skill in Q3 for a silky assist to Joel Embiid. With over six minutes left on the clock, Kemba Walker rushed in from the left side of the court. With LeBron James trying to cut off his passing lanes, Walker cheekily nutmegged James with a behind-the-back pass to find Joel Embiid. The Cameroonian made no mistake to find the net for an easy score.

This fourth quarter has been intense, featured plenty of defense -- including a charge! -- and now guys arguing calls with the refs. Everyone's going hard out there. We're all winners.
Despite leading for much of the game, Team LeBron eventually came out on top with Lakers star Anthony Davis finding the basket with his free-throw to finish the game. Clippers star Kawhi Leonard scored a game-high 30 points for Team LeBron, while LeBron James dropped 23 points and six assists in 19 minutes of play.
Giannis Antetokounmpo starred for his side with 25 points with Kemba Walker and Joel Embiid chipping in with 23 and 22 points respectively.
