The NBA All-Star game takes center stage after an anti-climactic slam dunk contest and All-Star Saturday night. Paul George teamed up to win a piece of the dunk contest hardware (I think, still not sure what was going on there) but tonight PG will take the court in New Orleans for the opening tip alongside frenemies LeBron James and the rest of the East starters.

Coach Frank Vogel will be calling the shots for the East and will likely lean on his big man Roy Hibbert to add some size and defense to the East playing rotations. Defense in and All-Star game? Pretty sure Vogel won't know any other way to approach the game.

Starting Tuesday night, things get real serious for the Pacers as they begin the stretch run of the regular season with the final 30 games. But tonight is all about fun and also a chance for the coaching staff and players to celebrate their success so far this season which has them playing a big role in the All-Star game.

Please add your thoughts and observations on the game in the comments.
