Houston most recently served as the Host of the 2006 All-Star Game when the East beat the West 122-120. This will mark the third time in history that the city of Houston has hosted the game, the first coming in 1989 when the West beat the East 143-134. The All-Star Game was hosted by Los Angeles last season, and will be hosted by Orlando this season.
