Paul Pierce, Ray Allen, Kevin Garnett Join Rajon Rondo as Reserves for Eastern Conference All-Star Team


The Big Three will be joining point guard Rajon Rondo in Los Angeles as reserves for the Eastern Conference All-Star Team.

Paul Pierce, Ray Allen and Kevin Garnett have all been selected as reserves, Yahoo! Sports NBA columnist Adrian Wojnarowski reports. They are joined by Miami forward Chris Bosh, Atlanta center Al Horford, and guard Joe Johnson.

The starters of the NBA All-Star Game were selected by the fans, while coaches across the league voted on the reserves for the star-studded roster.

Celtics head coach Doc Rivers told reporters earlier on Thursday that he would have been "very disappointed" if he didn't have four players on his roster, reports. Rivers, who earned the  title of Eastern Conference head coach on Wednesday, says he is going to play all his All-Stars together in the midseason classic.

Wojnarowski also released the reserves for the Western Conference team. Tim Duncan, Pau Gasol, Russell Westbrook, Blake Griffin, Manu Ginobili, Dirk Nowitzki and Deron Williams will all suit up for the West.

The NBA All-Star Game is scheduled for Feb. 20 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
