All-Stars announced: Thunder's Westbrook, Durant reunite with Houston's Harden

TULSA - More of the same for Russell Westbrook.

OKC's dynamic point guard was elected to his third straight NBA All-Star Game Thursday, joining teammate Kevin Durant and ex-Thunder favorite James Harden as three key cogs for the Western Conference.

Westbrook and Harden are two of 14 players added as reserves to play in the game, added by votes from the league's 30 coaches.

"Yessir bros! RT : Congrats to and for being NBA All stars!! Yesssiiirr," Harden tweeted.

Durant was voted in as a starter last week, trailing only Kobe Bryant and LeBron James for the most fan votes. Durant, a 4-time All-Star, was the game's MVP last season.

Along with averaging 22.7 points, Westbrook has collected 8.1 assists and 1.9 steals per game thus far, placing him in the top five in both categories.


Shot-blocking standout Serge Ibaka was left off the reserve roster, despite recording nearly three blocks a game and becoming one the NBA's most efficient scorers.

Former Sooner forward Blake Griffin will also suit up for the West, starting alongside Durant.

The game will be played Feb. 17 in Houston.
