Kevin Love is Out 6-8 Weeks with a Broken Hand

LOOK: Former Oklahoma star Blake Griffin sports Detroit Pistons jersey This just (Griff)in: Blake is a Bad Deal for Detroit

Detroit Pistons center Andre Drummond was selected to play in the All-Star Game on Tuesday as a replacement for injured Washington Wizards point guard John Wall. The former UCLA forward was the No. 5 pick in the 2008 NBA Draft.

He scored a career-high 26 points and grabbed 10 rebounds in a 124-115 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers at Little Caesars Arena.

Isaiah Thomas noted that players were not happy that he did not stay on the sidelines to support the rest of his team.

LeBron James led the way for the Cavaliers with 21 points followed by Channing Frye who had 20 off the bench.

Coach Tyronn Lue made a lineup adjustment before the Cavaliers played the Pacers on January 26, moving Tristan Thompson to starting center and Love to power forward. On the other end, the Cavs defense allowed 66 points in the second half. Last season, Love was forced to miss the All-Star game after undergoing minor knee surgery on February 14.


The Pistons acquired five-time all-star Griffin in a multi-player trade earlier on Tuesday and he is expected to join his new team soon. Reggie Bullock supplied 22 points, Anthony Tolliver had 20 and Ish Smith added 19 points and seven assists for the Pistons. "Now that we're going [it's] definitely all smiles".

Van Gundy was asked if Johnson will continue to play a prominent role once Griffin is integrated into the offense.

The award, which recognizes "an National Basketball Association player each month who best reflects the passion that the league and its players share for giving back to their communities", was presented to James for "providing educational resources and opportunities to improve the lives of children and families in Akron and the greater Cleveland area". But had Griffin chosen to leave in free agency, as James did when he joined the Miami Heat, he likely would have been lambasted by fans claiming he was not loyal to the franchise. He is, of course, one of their most important players. What do we have to do to get him in there. "I know that firsthand".

"Health", James said. "Health and continue to build on what we've done the last two games". "As a team, they played very well".

"They would have said we were insane", Whiteside said. "A lot of blow-bys, we didn't take the challenge".
