The NBA announced the reserves for the NBA All-Star game Thursday, and the Thunder's Russell Westbrook made the team once again.

One week ago, Kevin Durant was named a Western-Conference starter in the NBA All-Star game for the third-consecutive season. This week, it's Westbrook's turn to celebrate as the fourth-year guard from UCLA will be making his third-consecutive All-Star appearance.

Westbrook, along with the other reserves, was selected by the league's 30 head coaches.  He is averaging 22.7 points, 8.1 assists and 5.1 rebounds per game this season.

The game will take place in Houston on Sunday, Feb. 17.
