Milwaukee Bucks point guard Jrue Holiday was named an NBA All-Star on Thursday as part of the reserve squad for the Eastern Conference. It will be Holiday's second All-Star nod and his first since 2013.

Holiday is averaging 19.4 points per game so far this season to go along with 7.2 assists and 5.3 rebounds. He'll join teammate Giannis Antetokounmpo in Salt Lake City for the festivities after Antetokounmpo was named a captain for the game.

The Bucks are off to a 34-17 start, good for second place in the East. A big reason for the successes have revolved around Holiday's play especially with Khris Middleton missing a large chunk of the season early on due to injury.

The NBA All-Star Game will take place in Salt Lake City, Utah on Feb. 19.
