Kyrie Irving dunks at All-Star game

One of the more unique NBA All-Star weekends has come and gone, and once again, Team LeBron has gone out victorious. But it's not like the Nets' backcourt duo didn't try and get their team the win.

Kyrie Irving and James Harden held down the fort for Brooklyn's representation at the All-Star game after captain Kevin Durant was ruled out with his lingering hamstring injury.

Irving finished his seventh All-Star game with 24 points, 12 assists and six rebounds, while Harden, who played in his ninth All-Star game, dropped 21 points off the bench to go with four assists and two boards. Together, they knocked down nine three-pointers.

"It was incredible," Irving said about his experience. "I'm always grateful to share the floor with some highly talented individuals."

Even though Durant was unable to suit up Sunday and play with the Nets duo, Irving felt it was something the three of them shouldn't take for granted.

"Three guys on one team being All-Stars, obviously with [Kevin] not being here, it felt a little incomplete. ... but it takes a lot a lot of hard work. ...It's an honor to be able to put in work and reap the rewards -- especially when you reap the rewards with your teammates."

Here's a few highlights of the two during the game:
