The 2013 NBA Shooting Stars champion is Team Bosh of the Eastern Conference, defeating Team Westbrook of the Western Conference.

Team Bosh was made up of Miami Heat star Chris Bosh, Swin Cash of the WNBA's Chicago Sky and former Atlanta Hawks great Dominique Wilkins.

The team led by Oklahoma City Thunder star Russell Westbrook also included Maya Moore of the WNBA's Minnesota Lynx and retired NBA legendary clutch shooter Robert Horry.

In the first round, Team Bosh bested Team Lopez in what was a poor showing by both squads. Team Bosh finished with a time of 50 seconds, and that only stood because Team Lopez had a dreadful finish of one minute and seven seconds.

For the Western Conference, Team Westbrook emerged victorious after completing its round in an impressive 29.5 seconds, while Team Harden came up short with a time of 37.9 seconds.

Team Westbrook was cruising in the final round and looked certain to beat Team Bosh's time of one minute and 24 seconds, but then came the half-court shot.

Sadly for Team Westbrook, it was unable to make the half-court shot after getting to the final spot on the floor with plenty of time left. As time continued to tick, it figured to be Horry's moment to drain yet another clutch shot as he had done throughout his career.

However, that wasn't the case, and instead, nobody on Team Westbrook was able to convert the final shot. That led to an improbable victory for Team Bosh.

None of the teams in the final looked all that impressive, but Team Bosh was just slightly better. This was no doubt an ugly win for Bosh's squad, and while it won't be getting any style points for its victory, a win's a win.
