MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Minnesota Timberwolves forward Kevin Love has been voted a Western Conference starter for next month's All-Star game.

The results were announced Thursday night. They come as a bit of a surprise, because Love was fourth among frontcourt balloting when the last voting update was released last week. Love joins Los Angeles Clippers forward Blake Griffin and Oklahoma City forward Kevin Durant in the Western frontcourt.

It will be Love's third All-Star appearance. But it's the first time he's been voted a starter.

Love is averaging 25.0 points and 13.0 rebounds per game this season in a triumphant return from an injury-plagued season last year.

The game will be played in New Orleans on Feb. 16.
