Steph Curry is one of the headlining players in tonight's NBA All-Star Game. He's taking the game in stride.

Curry and LeBron James are captaining the two squads tonight. At halftime, Team Steph led Team LeBron 78-76.

Curry actually didn't contribute much to his team's effort in the first half. He shot just 1-for-9 from the field, 1-of-7 from three-point range, scoring only three points.

Steph doesn't seem to be stressing too much, though. In fact, when the second half started, he looked very relaxed.

Instead of taking the court for the third quarter, Curry stayed on the bench with his warmups on. He kept himself busy by snacking on popcorn.

The TNT cameras captured him in the act.

Again, this is a showcase for NBA players. There is no need for guys to push themselves too much.

In fact, Jimmy Butler didn't play at all in the first half for this reason. It looks like Butler might not play at all.

Steph has come off the bench midway through the third quarter, so his night isn't totally over. We'll see how much he plays in crunch time.
