Post-game Reactions

After dominating nearly the entire game, the West held on to win the 2012 NBA All Star game.  Say what you want about LeBron James– and I know you will- but watching him hit those threes in the second half was just awesome.  The East were dead men walking until they ramped up the defense and decided to play an actual game in the second half.  Before that it was just everybody dunking on everyone and Dwight Howard bricking threes.

In the spirit of full disclosure, I don’t like the All Star game.  I find it boring and pointless.  That said, the second half of tonight’s game was positively entertaining.

From a Celtics standpoint, it was a bit of a sad reminder that Paul Pierce is nearing the twilight of his career.  He easily had the worst game out of any All Star going 1 for 8 and finishing with 3 points.  Rajon Rondo was a bit better, dishing out 8 assists, but still didn’t really dazzle.

It’s important to keep context in mind when looking at the C’s All Star representation.  First off, who cares?  It’s the ASG.  I kind of wish I saw Pierce jacking more shots.  Secondly, both Pierce and Rondo were able to play low minutes and rest up.  Rest right now is much more important for the C’s than any ASG.  Lastly, Pierce has had plenty of awesome All Star moments and Rondo will have plenty to come.
