VIDEO: 2012 NBA All-Star Game, Russel Westbrook Gets Unleashed

The spectacular dunks continued in the second quarter of the 2012 NBA All-Star game. Here we have Philadelphia 76ers Andre Iguodala stealing the ball and then taking it in for the dunk.

Without getting much action in the first quarter, the scoring machine known as Russell Westbrook picked up the pace in the second quarter with more playing time, scoring more points than minutes played. Two of Westbrook's points came from this neat pass from West guard Steve Nash.

As you can see, Nash sent the bounce pass from half court where Westbrook picked it up for the lay in. Westbrook has nearly as many shot attempts as he has minutes played in the first half, which is totally expected from Westbrook in a game where the goal is to just flat out score.

And here's a video of Westbrook trying to throw himself an ally-oop, messing it up, but still being able to lay it in for points.

Then of course, Westbrook finally got his dunk:

So far in the game, Westbrook is second on the West in scoring with 17 points in just 12 minutes on 11 shots. As for the score at halftime, the West are blowing the doors off the East, 88-69.
