ZBo Named All-Star Reserve

Memphis Grizzlies forward Zach Randolph is an All-Star for the second time and the first player in franchise history to earn multiple All-Star honors.

ZBo, who made his All-Star debut in 2010, is currently the leader in double-doubles with 27, averaging 16.1 points and 11.6 rebounds in 39 games this season.  He also ranks second among qualifying players in both total rebounding and offensive rebounding, and is one of two players in the league averaging at least 16 points and 11 rebounds.

Randolph is the third Grizzlies player to be named to the All-Star game, and his selection also marks the first time the franchise has sent a player to the All-Star Game in consecutive seasons.  Teammate Marc Gasol went in 2012.

Season highs this season include a 38 point and 22 rebound performance in an overtime win Dec. 4 vs. Phoenix, marking his fourth career 30-20 game and his highest scoring total in a Grizzlies uniform. 

The 14 players selected were chosen by the 30 NBA head coaches, who were asked to vote for seven players in their respective conferences – two guards, three frontcourt players and two players regardless of position.  They were not permitted to vote for players from their own team.
