Russell Westbrook has been a human highlight reel at the 2015 NBA All-Star Game, and this third-quarter alley-oop put an exclamation point on his big night.

Late in the third quarter, Westbrook went way up to get a Chris Paul lob and then finished the play off with a bang.

Westbrook's insane athleticism may have actually hurt him on the play. On the big alley-oop, he actually hit his head on the backboard:

This wasn't the first time the point guards had hooked up for an alley-oop in the game. In the first quarter, the two teamed up on a long lob from Paul to Russ. Their third-quarter connection certainly brought a little bit more energy to the game than the first one.
