The All-Stars come to Los Angeles, as the Forum in Inglewood hosts the 33rd Annual NBA All-Star Game. The Eastern Conference wins the day on the court, beating the Western Conference 132-123 as Julius Erving of the Philadelphia 76ers wins the All-Star Game MVP for the second time in his career. The game is best remembered for Marvin Gaye’s rendition of the Star-Spangled Banner before the game.
