How were the NBA All-Star reserves determined?
Each NBA head coach voted for seven players in his conference – two guards, three frontcourt players and two additional players at any position. The head coaches were not permitted to vote for players from their own team.
Commissioner Adam Silver selects the replacement for any player unable to participate in the All-Star Game, choosing a player from the same conference as the player who is being replaced. Silver selected Toronto’s Scottie Barnes and Atlanta’s Trae Young to replace Philadelphia’s Joel Embiid and New York’s Julius Randle.
When is the 2024 NBA All-Star Game?
The 2024 NBA All-Star Game will take place in Indianapolis on Sunday, Feb. 18, 2024. All-Star Weekend will encompass three total nights of events from Feb. 16-18, 2024. For a complete schedule of events, click here.
2024 NBA All-Star Game beneficiaries
The East will play for Special Olympics Indiana and The West will play for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Indianapolis. Each will start the NBA All-Star Game with $100,000 with an additional $240,000 awarded to the charity of the winning team.
2024 NBA All-Star Game format
As the league celebrates basketball’s deep roots in the state of Indiana, the 73rd NBA All-Star Game will feature the return of the classic matchup between the Eastern Conference and the Western Conference. The traditional scoring system with four 12-minute quarters will also return.
While the NBA All-Star Game will no longer have an untimed fourth quarter or conclude when one team reaches or surpasses the Final Target Score, the teams will continue to compete to win each quarter for a charitable organization of their choosing.
