Point guard Damian Lillard was not among the seven reserves.Atlanta has won 17 in a row and has a 38-8 record, second-best in the NBA. The Hawks were hoping for four spots, but Kyle Korver was not chosen by East coaches.Our whole starting five deserves to be there, Teague said before the results were announced. We have a good ballclub. Were all playing at a really high level right now. And were playing as a team. Thats all you can really ask for.Clevelands Kyrie Irving, last years All-Star game MVP, and first-timer Jimmy Butler of Chicago were the other players announced to the East roster.The rest of the West reserves for the Feb. 15 game at Madison Square Garden in New York are James Harden (Houston), Klay Thompson (Golden State), Tim Duncan (San Antonio) and Chris Paul (Clippers).Head coaches in each conference had to vote for two guards, three frontcourt players and two players regardless of position. They couldnt vote for players on their own teams.The starters were voted by fans and announced last Thursday. LeBron James (Cleveland), Pau Gasol (Chicago), Carmelo Anthony (New York), John Wall (Washington) and Kyle Lowry (Toronto) will start for the East.

Yeah, theres a sense of pride. They work really hard. They do a lot of things we appreciate. If other people are appreciating them, thats a good thing.Korver, shooting 53 per cent from 3-point range, still might have a chance if Wade isnt able to play in his 11th consecutive All-Star selection. The Heat star is battling a strained right hamstring.The powerful West has many more snubs, including Lillard, whose Trail Blazers are tied for third in the conference and who is averaging 21.8 points.Sacramentos DeMarcus Cousins wasnt picked despite averaging 23.8 points and 12.3 rebounds as perhaps the best big man in the league this season, and neither Memphis nor Dallas had a reserve selected despite their strong play and worthy candidates.Marc Gasol said he thought both Mike Conley and Zach Randolph should have been chosen.Were the second-best team in the West. I feel like us being there, both (should be there) because they are a huge part of what we do, Gasol said. All-Stars should be about winning and telling guys thats how you play. You play well on a winning team, youre supposed to be there.Duncan did make it for a 15th time, joining Shaquille ONeal and Kevin Garnett with the third-most selections behind Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (19) and Bryant (17).Durant will get the chance to improve his 30.6 points per game average in the All-Star game, best all-time. West coaches went with the leagues reigning MVP even though he has missed 25 of the Thunders 46 games and the team is only 23-23, currently out of playoff position.I love Kevin Durant, but he hasnt played enough games, TNTs Charles Barkley said.

Trout hit a solo homer in the first inning and Hamilton hit a three-run drive in the sixth off Jerome Williams that made it 8-1. After Erick Aybars RBI single, Calhoun added a two-run shot off Williams in the seventh. "As competitors, five out of eight games, we are capable of doing something like that," Hamilton said. "The talent is there. We dont go out and try to do that every day. We go out and have the at bats we are going to have. Thats contagious. Thats the mentality we have." Trout also threw out Marc Krauss at the plate in the second inning to keep the Astros off the scoreboard. Garrett Richards (1-0) allowed one run on three hits with five walks and seven strikeouts in five innings. "Its not just me, its all of us," Trout said.

Thats why they are so good. You have to execute your pitches every time. I just left it over the plate too many times." Jose Altuve had two hits and a bases-loaded walk in the fifth inning. The Astros loaded the bases in the fifth and sixth innings but were only able to get the one run as Richards struck out Krauss to end the fifth and Fernando Salas struck out Marwin Gonzalez and induced an Alex Presley ground out to end the sixth.
