First Star

Dwyane Wade (MIA) 26.3

For the second game in a row, Wade tops the Five Stars with an all-around performance. He scored a game-high tying 27 points in 32:26, earning a plus-6 along the way. Wade made 11-of-22 shots and all five of his free throw attempts, dishing out a game-high tying eight assists with four rebounds, three steals, and two blocked shots.

The coaches and my teammates put the ball in my hand to make plays or to score the basketball. That's what I do. - Wade

Second Star

Chris Bosh (MIA) 17.9

Bosh was nearly as good as Wade, also scoring 27 points but doing it on a more impressive 12-of-18 performance. He made one-of-four shots from outside and two-of-three from the stripe, with five rebounds, four assists, and a plus-4 rating in 32:07.

The team is looking for us to be effective all the time, especially late. That's our job. Dwyane, he's one of the best in the world at it. He's going to get his shot and he's usually going to make it. I just try to work off of him and shoot the ball with confidence and make plays when it's time. - Bosh

Third Star

Andrea Bargnani (BKN) 16.1

Bargnani came off the bench and led the Nets with 20 points on a nifty nine-for-12 show from the field. In 24:21, Bargnani registered a minus-3 rating with one rebound, one assist and one blocked shot, also going two-for-three from the foul line.

Down the stretch we were trying some different things to try and slow down the momentum. Wade was able to get away in some isolation situations and get off some good looks, and Bosh at the end of the second half, the isolations and open shots. - Nets coach Tony Brown

Fourth Star

Justise Winslow (MIA) 15.2

Winslow makes his long-awaited return to the Five Stars by appearing for a game-high 36:51 on the floor. He scored 13 points on six-of-seven shooting, making his only three-point attempt and adding seven rebounds, two assists, two steals and a plus-4 rating off the bench.

(Winslow's) a Swiss Army knife that can do a lot of different things. - Heat coach Erik Spoelstra

Fifth Star

Joe Johnson (BKN) 13.2

Johnson started at point guard for the Nets and scored 15 points with eight assists, four rebounds, and a plus-2 rating in 36:40.
