The 2023-24 season just started, but before you know it, the All-Star break will be here. New York Knicks fans are hoping they’ll get to cheer on a couple of their favorite players in Indianapolis in February.
The format of the 2024 NBA All-Star Game has changed after several years of a mix of players from both conferences being on the same team.
2024 NBA All-Star Game format
The NBA is returning to an East versus West format in 2024 for the first time since 2017. One player from each conference with the highest number of votes will still serve as the captain of their respective teams, but there won’t be an All-Star draft anymore.
The All-Star Game will also return to the 12-minute per quarter format rather than an untimed fourth quarter that concludes when one team has met the Final Target Score.
Where is the 2024 NBA All-Star Game?
The 2024 All-Star Game will be held in Indianapolis at Gainbridge Fieldhouse on Sunday, Feb. 18.
How can I watch the 2024 NBA All-Star Game?
TNT will stream the 2024 NBA All-Star Game. If you don’t have cable, Sling TV offers TNT. Sling TV costs $40 a month but is available for as low as $20 for your first month.
Which Knicks players could be selected for the 2024 NBA All-Star Game?
If Julius Randle busts out of the slump he’s been in to start the season, he could be selected as an All-Star for the first time in back-to-back years. He represented New York in 2023 as an Eastern Conference reserve.
Jalen Brunson is a favorite to earn his first All-Star nod. He was the team’s most consistent player last season, and he’s coming off a 45-point performance after getting off to a slow start offensively in 2023-24. RJ Barrett’s a sleeper name to watch.
