PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — The Portland Trail Blazers are learning the hard part of rising to the top of the league is staying there.

Portland limps into the All-Star Break having lost four of its last six games. While LaMarcus Aldridge makes his third All-Star appearance and Damian Lillard makes his first, the rest of the Blazers will get a much needed break.

It's been clear that they're fatigued. After a 2-2 road trip, the Blazers fell 98-92 at home Tuesday night to Kevin Durant and the Oklahoma City Thunder, before losing 122-117 to the Clippers in Los Angeles on Wednesday night.

After spending time this season atop the Western Conference, Portland is 36-17 and currently knotted in a three-way tie with Houston and the Clippers for third place, behind the Thunder and San Antonio.
