In night of a million alley-oops, Anthony Davis’ finish may have been best (VIDEO)

TORONTO — The All-Star Game ended up having an advanced stat guru’s perfect shot selection distribution: 139 threes, 109 shots at the rim, just 38 shots from the midrange.

I don’t know how many of those 109 shots at the rim were alley-oops, but if you said half I wouldn’t be shocked. It seemed like there was more than one a minute.

The best finish of the night went to Anthony Davis, mostly because while Chris Paul will get the assist on this one (he had 16 on the night), that pass is where maybe one guy on the planet could get it and finish it. That ball has no business being dunked. Davis finished it with authority.
