FINAL: West 152, East 149; LaMarcus Aldridge Finishes With 4 Points In 2012 NBA All-Star Game

What, me worry?

UPDATE: LaMarcus played under 5 minutes in the first half, scoring two on a classic LMA style jumper. In the second half, he scored 2 more points on a layup. Western Coach Scott Brooks rarely played him (LMA got 8 minutes, and never played when the passing PG's were in), and primarily focused on giving minutes to his own players. The running theory in the GDT is that LMA was making a short appearance, then resting his ankle. If you missed the game, don't bother catching a replay.

The box score is here, don't bother. If you're interested in real-time commentary, see the Gameday Thread comments below.

Stay tuned for more from Ben, who will have updates after the game. In the meantime, follow him on Twitter, where he has already noted that Aldridge "definitely expected to play more minutes" tonight.

-----------------------

Yes, the murmurs are true, there's actually a Trail Blazer in this year's All Star Game!

LaMarcus Aldridge will be the first Blazer to play since Brandon Roy in 2009. This is the 20th anniversary of the best Blazer performance in All-Star history, as Clyde Drexler's 22 point, 9 rebound, 6 assist game led the Western Conference to victory in this same Orlando Arena. Don't get me started on why he didn't the MVP award that night. You never know what player will get hot, so could LaMarcus be the first Blazer to win the All-Star MVP?

Start time: 4:30pm Pacific (3pm for pre-game)
TV: TNT
Streaming: TNT online

The usual Gameday Thread rules apply, but hang out here, relax, root for LaMarcus, and enjoy the All-Star game with your fellow Blazer fans. -- Tim
