Kevin Love was selected as a reserve for this year's NBA All-Star Game.

This is Love's second straight All-Star pick and the fifth in his career. He was previously named as a reserve in 2011, 2012 and 2017 (missed game due to injury). He was named a starter in 2014.

Love is joining LeBron James, who received the most votes in the league and was named captain in the East.

Love is one of three east players averaging at least 18 points and nine rebounds.
