The NBA All-Star Game isn't known for its defense.

Still, the Splash Brothers had to try.

Warriors stars Steph Curry and Klay Thompson were on opposite teams for the 2019 All-Star Game on Sunday night in Charlotte, and each had the opportunity to defend the other.

In the first half, it was Curry's turn on defense:

Way to contest, Steph.

Then, in the second half, Klay had a chance for retribution.

Hint: It didn't go very well. 

Talk about adding some trash-talk ammunition. Klay isn't likely to hear the end of that until the next All-Star Game, if he's lucky.

He did get the last laugh over his fellow Splash Brother, though. Thompson and Team LeBron prevailed over Curry and Team Giannis by a final score of 178-164.

Like I said, not a lot of defense.

Klay got the last laugh, but Steph got the last word.

Between a ridiculous bounce pass to Giannis Antetokounmpo for an alley-oop and a bounce pass to himself for a reverse dunk, it appears Mr. Curry might not be done revolutionizing the sport.
