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

Russ Isabella-USA TODAY Sports

The Western conference is looking to continue its streak over the East.

The 62nd annual NBA All Star game takes place on Sunday when Kevin Durant and the Western Conference All-Stars look to continue their winning streak over LeBron James and the Eastern Conference. The stars are the same, but one big name has switched teams, with 2012 fan-vote leader Dwight Howard now representing the Los Angeles Lakers.

Dwyane Wade of the Miami Heat was the last All-Star MVP for the East, leading them to victory in 2010; it was the last time the Eastern Conference was able to win. In that game, he scored 28 points and added 11 assists in Dallas Cowboys Stadium, and will need to have another stout effort to beat the West on Sunday.

Led by a starting lineup that includes Wade, James, Carmelo Anthony, and Kevin Garnett, they boast a wealth of experience. They're coached by Erik Spoelstra of the Miami Heat. Rajon Rondo was going to start the game before an injury ended his season. His replacement in the starting lineup is undecided.

Unfortunately for Detroit Pistons fans, there are not players to watch on Sunday. One could make an argument for Greg Monroe, but it's tough given the East's forwards.

Meanwhile in the West, their starters have impressive resumes of their own. They'll look to continue their winning ways with Chris Paul and Kobe Bryant in the back court, accompanied by Blake Griffin, Durant, and Howard. It's a younger starting lineup, with a lot of explosive athletes bolstered with a veteran back court. Gregg Popovich of the San Antonio Spurs is their head coach.

Where: Toyota Center, Houston, Texas

When: Sunday, Feb. 17th, 8:30 p.m. ET

TV: TNT
