Portland Trail Blazers players Damian Lillard and Carmelo Anthony continue to hold steady in their NBA All-Star Game voting ranks. Lillard (third among guards) and Anthony (eighth among frontcourt players) remain in the spots they were last week. While Lillard is third, he trails the second starting guard spot by over a million votes — Luka Doncic and James Harden look like runaway locks for the Western Conference’s starting backcourt.
