In the fourth, Jabari Parker came alive and Damian Lillard chipped in some points to bring the East back in the game. With time winding down, the West kept giving it to the big man duo of Anthony Davis and Kristaps Porzingas down low, but Milos Teodosic of the Washington Wizards took the East down the stretch at the end and hit 4 of 4 FTs within the last minute to seal a close 1 point victory for the East!
Congratulations to Milos Teodosic of the Washington Wizards for winning MVP of the 2023 All Star Game!
