The Houston Rockets won't be represented in Sunday's NBA All-Star game. Houston's Kyle Lowry made a strong case to be included on the Western Conference team but it was tough to crack a backcourt that already includes the likes of Chris Paul, Steve Nash, Tony Parker and Russell Westbrook.
The game promises to be an entertaining affair once again. The West took home the victory in last year's game winning 148-143. This year's Western Conference All-Stars will be led by the likes of Kevin Durant, Blake Griffin and Kobe Bryant who were voted in as starters along with Paul and Bryant's teammate Andrew Bynum.
The East squad is stacked as well with LeBron James, Derrick Rose, Dwyane Wade, Carmelo Anthony and Dwight Howard all being voted in as starters.
Game date/time: Sunday, February 26, 6:30 p.m. CT
Location: Amway Center, Orlando, Florida
