How to get your favorite Rockets players in the All-Star game

Antetokounmpo received 863,416 votes to edge James (856,080) by almost 7,500 votes for the top spot in the Eastern Conference and overall after the first 12 days of balloting. In the Western Conference, Kevin Durant leads with 767,402 votes and teammate Stephen Curry is next with 735,115 - a difference of 32,287 votes. LeBron James and Joel Embiid join him in the frontcourt for the East while Kyrie Irving and DeMar DeRozan lead the backcourt after the first returns. Following Durant and Curry are Houston Rockets guard James Harden (602,040) and Oklahoma City Thunder guard Russell Westbrook (438,469).

Finishing first in either conference among All-Star voting matters this season because the league has done away with the traditional East-West game in favor of two teams picked out of a pool of All-Stars by the top vote getter in each conference.

Klay Thompson and Draymond Green received 359,442 and 325,612 votes respectively. The team rosters will be revealed on January 25. Those two players will serve as captains for the 67th All-Star Game, which will be played February 18 in Los Angeles. The leading vote-receiver from each conference will be given rights to choose his team, but starters will be pre-determined by the results. Fans will account for 50 percent, while all current players and a media panel will account for 25 percent each.

Young charged for Tadic clash
He's expected to miss Premier League matches with Everton and Stoke City, as well as a 3rd round FA Cup match with Derby County.

Players and select media will be able to complete one full ballot, featuring three frontcourt players and two guards each from both the Eastern Conference and the Western Conference.

The players will be sorted by their conference and position (guards and frontcourt players), with the two top guards and three top frontcourt players named as starters.

The captains will be the top vote-getter from each conference, which based upon Thursday's update would be Antetokounmpo and Durant. Voting will conclude at 10:59 p.m. Curry has now recovered from his ankle injury, and he should be a shoe-in to make the fifth All-Star Game of his National Basketball Association career. This time around two captains will be selected, and they'll have the opportunity to select their own teams for the midseason exhibition.
