The Boston Celtics will be represented by their two-best players at the 2021 NBA All-Star Game on March 7.

The league announced the reserves for both the Eastern Conference and Western Conference All-Star teams during TNT's pre-game show Tuesday night.

Celtics guard Jaylen Brown and forward Jayson Tatum both were selected.

Brown will soon make his first All-Star appearance after being snubbed a year ago. He is averaging a career-high 25.5 points, along with 5.5 rebounds and 3.9 assists per game. Brown also is shooting 40.9 percent from 3-point range. 

Tatum will make his second All-Star appearance after earning his first selection last season. He leads the Celtics with 26 points and 4.6 assists per game, in addition to pulling down 7.1 rebounds each night and shooting 39.0 percent from beyond the arc.

Here is the full list of All-Star reserves for both conferences:

EAST

James Harden, Brooklyn Nets

Julius Randle, New York Knicks

Jayson Tatum, Boston Celtics

Jaylen Brown, Boston Celtics

Zach LaVine, Chicago Bulls

Ben Simmons, Philadelphia 76ers

WEST 

Chris Paul, Phoenix Suns

Paul George, Los Angeles Clippers

Damian Lillard, Portland Trail Blazers

The Celtics have now had at least one All-Star in six consecutive seasons. This also will be the third All-Star game in the last four years featuring multiple Celtics players. 

The 2021 NBA All-Star Game will be hosted by Atlanta, which should make it extra special for Brown, who grew up in Georgia.
