HOUSTON - NBA sources told FOX 26 Sports the Houston Rockets and the City of Houston landed the NBA All-Star Game in 2013.

The game will be played at Toyota Center on Feb. 17, 2013.

NBA All-Star week will be Feb. 15-17.

The Rockets and Toyota Center also hosted the game in 2006.

The Rockets and the city had initially targeted the All-Star game in 2014, but changed their focus to getting the game a year earlier.

This will be the third time the NBA All-Star Game has come to Houston.

It was also held in the Astrodome in 1989.

This will be the sixth time since the NBA-ABA merger in 1977 that the NBA All-Star Game will be played in Texas.
