This all-star game was known for setting at that time, an NBA All-Star attendance record and for having neither Magic Johnson nor Larry Bird playing, though both were still active in the NBA. Both were selected, but sat out due to injuries. Though he only scored 4 points, the game ended with Abdul-Jabbar hitting the final shot of the game, fittingly a Sky Hook.
Karl Malone and Michael Jordan both finished the game with 28 points, while John Stockton handed out 17 assists.
