NBA All-Star Game 2013: Time, TV schedule, radio and more

Ronald Martinez

Kevin Durant dropped 36 points and emerged as the MVP of last year's All-Star Game. Will we see a repeat this time around?

The Minnesota Timberwolves sent two representatives to the Rising Stars Challenge, but they won't have anyone on the court Sunday night for the 2013 All-Star Game in Houston. Instead, you'll get to watch Kevin Durant, LeBron James and the rest of the league's best and brightest battling for a victory and bragging rights.

Durant scored 36 points and hauled in seven rebounds in his MVP performance during the West's 152-149 win last year. While he's favored to repeat with MVP honors, James may have something to say about that. James' streak of scoring 30 points while shooting 60 percent or better this past week blew everyone away. Oh, he also scored 36 points in the 2012 All-Star Game. Expect both players to vie for top honors again.

James Harden is the only first-time selection from the West, while the East has six newcomers on the roster. Kobe Bryant was this year's leading vote-getter in his 15th selection. You'll see plenty of familiar faces as well.

Here's the full rundown of what you need to know.

Time: Feb. 17 at 8:30 p.m. ET.

Where to watch: TNT

Where to listen: ESPN Radio

West roster: Durant, Bryant, Blake Griffin, Dwight Howard and Chris Paul are set to start. Harden, LaMarcus Aldridge, Tim Duncan, David Lee, Tony Parker, Zach Randolph and Russell Westbrook will be the reserves. Gregg Popovich is the man in charge of the Western squad for 2013.
