Portland Trail Blazers guard Damian Lillard was named an NBA Western Conference All-Star by a vote of NBA head coaches last week.
Lillard is averaging 26.4 points, 4.6 rebounds, 6.3 assists and 1.08 steals for the season. An NBA All-Star in 2014, 2015 and 2018, he is only one of four players in Portland franchise history to become a four-time All-Star.
The five starters from the Western Conference, decided by player, media and fan balloting, consist of Stephen Curry (Golden State), Kevin Durant (Golden State), Paul George (Oklahoma City), James Harden (Houston) and LeBron James (L.A. Lakers). Lillard will round out the reserves from the West, including LaMarcus Aldridge (San Antonio), Anthony Davis (New Orleans), Nikola Jokic (Denver), Klay Thompson (Golden State), Karl-Anthony Towns (Minnesota) and Russell Westbrook (Oklahoma City).
The 2019 NBA All-Star Game will tip-off at 5 p.m. (Pacific) on Sunday, Feb. 17 in Charlotte, N.C. The game will air live on TNT.
