Miami Heat guard Dragic gets All-Star call in place of Love

Miami Heat guard Dragic gets All-Star call in place of Love

NBA Commissioner Adam Silver named Dragic to replace love on Team LeBron - the team captained by Cavs superstar LeBron James in the new-format exhibition.

MIAMI (AP) - Goran Dragic was planning a vacation for All-Star weekend.

A spot became available due to an injury to Cleveland Cavaliers star Kevin Love, who has a hand injury.

Dragic, the first Slovenia native to make an All-Star team, will replace Cleveland Cavaliers forward Kevin Love, who suffered a broken left hand on January 30 against the Detroit Pistons. Love and Dragic both play for Eastern Conference teams.

Unlike the aforementioned trio, the Slovenian now enjoys a winning record with his team as the Heat are fourth in the east at 29-22. This season, he's averaged 29.8 FanDuel points off 17.0 points, 4.1 rebounds, and 4.8 assists in 31.8 minutes a game.

Teammates mobbed him when they got the word on Thursday.

Silver made the pick diplomatically: Dragic was next in line, based on the number of voting points he received from National Basketball Association head coaches among Eastern Conference players not already selected as reserves or as an injury replacement.

We don't have access to the results of the coaches' voting, which has been the deciding factor in choosing the injury replacements so far. "Goran, we feel, is an All-Star".

Dragic, a two-time Eastern Conference Player of the Week, will make his first All-Star appearance.

"I think LA is going to be fine", Dragic said.
