The hometown fans got a show from Sue Bird on Saturday as the 2017 WNBA All-Star Game was hosted in Seattle, Washington. Bird and her teammate Breana Stewart were amongst the Western Conference stars, along with Maya Moore of the Minnesota Lynx. While Bird set a new All-Star Game record, Moore captured the game's MVP award, the second of her career.

All-Star Game recap

Maya Moore scored 23 points for the Western Conference in the annual WNBA All-Star Game to capture the MVP award. The Minnesota forward was 9-for-17 overall and 5-for-10 from downtown. Teammate Nneka Ogwumike, the reigning WNBA MVP, came off the bench to score 22 points on 11-for-15 shooting while also pulling down 10 boards.

Candace Parker scored 13, while Diana Taurasi and Rebekkah Brunson each added 12.

While the West started off with a 35-30 lead after one quarter, the two teams were tied at halftime. However, the West surged to a 32-21 scoring pace for the third quarter to take control of the game. The East outscored their opponents 36-34 in the final quarter, but it was too little too late.

On the losing side, the Connecticut Sun's Jonquel Jones led all players with 24 points. She shot 10-for-15 for the day including a 3-for-8 performance from three-point range. Not only did Jones lead her Eastern Conference team in scoring, she also had the game's only highlight dunk, mentioning in a post-game interview that Diana Taurasi suggested she go for it.

For the Eastern Conference reserves, Candice Dupree, Allie Quigley, and Layshia Clarendon all came off the bench to add 14 apiece for the East, with Clarendon dishing out 10 assists as well.

Bird's record, Quigley 3-point champ

It was hometown favorite Sue Bird who racked up 11 assists in the game. That stat gave Bird a new WNBA All-Star Game record as she was also appearing in her 10th WNBA All-Star Game, tying a mark set by only a few other players in the league's history.

At halftime, Bird also competed in the league's reintroduction of the Three-point Shootout. Five players competed in this year's contest including New York's Sugar Rodgers, Connecticut's Jasmine Thomas, Minnesota's Maya Moore, and Sue Bird. Bird had a disappointing overall performance and bowed out in the first round of competition as only the top two scores advanced.

Those top two scorers went to Sugar Rodgers who set the pace and Allie Quigley. In the head-to-head finale, Quigley lit the place up, totaling 27 points from her various shots -- including regular and money balls. With the win, Quigley received a check for her charity of choice.
