HOUSTON (AP) - Usain Bolt took joined the East team in the All-Star celebrity game to have a little fun.

He had no idea the West team would take the game so seriously.

Five-foot-2 comedian Kevin Hart took most valuable player honors in leading the West to a 58-38 win over the Bolt and the East on Friday night.

Afterward the Jamaican sprinter says he was surprised by the intensity of the West team coached by Houston All-Star James Harden. Bolt says, "We got beat bad, but their team was much more serious.''

Bolt did show his athleticism a few times, most notably on a two-handed dunk in the first half.

Hart challenged Bolt to a race during a timeout where the pair each had to dribble and make two layups, and shocked the crowd by winning.
