Fun at (Mohegan) Sun

The All-Star Game came down to the wire, with Hilton Armstrong misfiring on a 3-pointer at the buzzer to give the Blue Team a 119-117 over the White Team. Armstrong's two free throws with 38.6 seconds left tied the game at 117, but the Blue Team came down and got a third-effort layup from game MVP Rudy Gay (after being rejected by Armstrong) to take the lead for good.
Ray Allen and Kevin Ollie each missed 3-pointers in the final 10 seconds for the White Team, but Armstrong knocked the ball out of Emeka Okafor's hands and had the chance for the game-winner, only to misfire.
Gay finished with a game-high 31 points.

**A correction from a prior blog: Jerome Dyson was also in the house, with Hasheem Thabeet and Jonathan Mandeldove. Also in attendance was Charles Okwandu, a 7-foot incoming UConn JUCO transfer.
