The Detroit Pistons may be having an up-and-down season, but they will have one All-Star representing them in Charlotte. Blake Griffin was named as a reserve for the Eastern Conference All-Star team, the league announced.

Griffin is having himself a magnificent season in an otherwise disappointing Pistons campaign. The 29-year-old forward is averaging a career-best 26.3 points per game on 48 percent shooting. He is also grabbing eight rebounds and dishing out five assists per game, a well-rounded star.
The All-Star Game will be played Sunday, February 17th in Charlotte. The draft, which will be lead by Western Conference captain LeBron James and Eastern Conference Captain Giannis Antetokounmpo, will be held February 7th.
