NEW YORK, Jan. 24 (UPI) -- San Antonio's Tim Duncan and Miami's Chris Bosh were among those selected Thursday to fill out the rosters for this year's NBA All-Star Game.

The starting lineups were announced last week and the league's coaches voted on which reserve players would make the trip to Houston for the game on Feb. 17. Seven reserve players were announced for each team.

Five of those from the Easter Conference will be making their All-Star debut -- New York's Tyson Chandler, Indiana's Paul George, Philadelphia's Jrue Holiday, Cleveland's Kyrie Irving and Chicago's Joakim Noah.

Bosh will be participating in the game for the eighth time and Chicago's Luol Deng will be taking part in the contest for the second time.

Along with Duncan, the Western Conference bench will be made up of San Antonio's Tony Parker, Portland's LaMarcus Aldridge, Houston's James Harden, Golden State's Davis Lee, Memphis' Zach Randolph and Oklahoma City's Russell Westbrook.

Los Angeles Lakers superstar Kobe Bryant led fan voting and will start for the West along with teammate Dwight Howard, Chris Paul and Blake Griffin of the Los Angeles Clippers and Kevin Durant of the Oklahoma City Thunder. Durant was the MVP of last year's game.

The East starters will be LeBron James and Dwyane Wade of Miami, Rajon Rondo and Kevin Garnett of Boston and Carmelo Anthony of New York.
