With the teams tied at 152 in the 4th quarter and chasing a target score of 157, an unusual event occurred in the All-Star game, as a coaches’ challenge was issued in response to a foul call. The challenge ended up working, as Team LeBron ended up getting the ball instead of Team Giannis receiving two free throws for Joel Embiid in a key spot. Then, shortly after, Giannis Antetokounmpo was called for goaltending on a LeBron James layup, which made the score 156-153 in favor of Team LeBron. However, the goaltend was successfully overturned after another challenge, which kept the score at 154-153.
