Knicks' Kristaps Porzingis Selected To First All Star Game

Knicks' Kristaps Porzingis Selected To First All Star Game

Joining Westbrook are San Antonio Spurs' LaMarcus Aldridge, Timberwolves' Jimmy Butler, and Portland Trail Blazers' Damian Lillard. That type of pettiness has come to define the National Basketball Association this season, and even though the All-Star game is an exhibition, it might not be a surprise if some of that bad blood spills over to that stage.

Besides Washington's John Wall and Bradley Beal, the rest of the Eastern Conference reserves were Boston's Al Horford, Cleveland's Kevin Love, New York's Kristaps Porzingis, Toronto's Kyle Lowry and Indiana's Victor Oladipo.

The All-Star Game format, which traditionally has been formed as Eastern Conference vs.

After weeks of anticipation, it was revealed that the coaches have rewarded Porzingis by voting him to his first career All-Star Game appearance.

The Knicks big man has been selected as a reserve to the NBA All-Star Game, the league announced Tuesday.

Porzingis is now averaging 23.3 points, 6.7 rebounds, 1.2 assists, 2.3 blocks, and 1.8 three-point field goals made per game.

Starters for the game will be LeBron James (captain), Stephen Curry (Captain), James Harden, Kevin Durant, Anthony Davis, DeMarcus Cousins, Kyrie Irving, DeMar DeRozan, Giannis Antetokounmpo and Joel Embiid. LeBron James and Stephen Curry, the leading vote-getters from each conference, were named team captains and will select rosters for their respective teams from the pool of players. Certain aspects of the game remain the same - five starters are still chosen from both conferences, and there must be 12 representatives from the East and West. Largely in part due to their team play but it's quite clear that they have been led by third-year center Nikola Jokic.

This is Towns' first time as an All-Star.

Golden State is the first team to have a record-tying four all-stars in consecutive years.

Unsurprisingly, all four of Golden State's all-stars made it to the game.
