The Golden State Warriors will have a pair of starters representing the team at the 2022 NBA All-Star game in Cleveland.

On Thursday, the NBA announced both Steph Curry and Andrew Wiggins have been named starters for the 2022 NBA All-Star game. 2022 will mark Curry’s eighth trip to the All-Star game.

Despite a recent slump, Curry has registered 14 games with 30 or more points, including a 50 point effort against the Atlanta Hawks in November. In December, Curry became the NBA’s all-time leader in made 3-pointers, passing NBA Hall of Famer Ray Allen.

Curry has helped push the Warriors to a 35-13 record, second-best in the Western Conference.

During his third season with the Warriors, the former No. 1 overall pick is averaging 18.1 points on 48.1% shooting from the field with 4.2 boards and two assists per game.

Along with providing consistent offense, Wiggins has been a key piece on Golden State’s defense that ranks at the top of the league in defensive rating (102.4).

Via @warriors on Twitter:

All-Star starters are determined by a combination of fan votes (50%), player votes (25%) and media votes (25%). The rest of the All-Star team will be announced on Feb. 3 before the draft on Feb. 10. The game is set for Sunday, Feb. 20.
