NBA All-Star Game 2012: Kevin Love Representing Timberwolves On West Roster

The Minnesota Timberwolves were well-represented at the NBA's annual All-Star weekend, but it'll all come to a close when 2012's rendition of the All-Star game is played on Sunday night. It'll be interesting to see if Kevin Love can follow up his three-point shooting championship from Saturday night with a solid performance among fellow all-stars.

Love played just 11 minutes in last year's game, compiling four rebounds and making just one of his three shot attempts after being a late replacement for Yao Ming. The phenomenal rebounder will come off the bench again this year, but hopefully he'll play a bigger role on the West roster this season.

The other big men on the West roster include Blake Griffin, Andrew Bynum, LaMarcus Aldridge, Marc Gasol and Dirk Nowitzki. Love's guards will be Tony Parker, Steve Nash, Chris Paul and college teammate Russell Westbrook while Kobe Bryant and Kevin Durant man the wing.

The game will tip-off Sunday night at 6:30 p.m. on TNT.
