NBA All-Star Game 2021 Tickets
Cheer on your favorite team members when you secure NBA All-Star Game tickets. It started in 1951 to draw attention away from a massive college point-shaving scandal. The game asks fans and coaches to select the 12-man roster from each conference. Coaches can not select their own players and the NBA commissioner can select a replacement if a player has been injured. The game is part of the NBA All-Star Weekend played in the middle of February. It pits the fan-favorite teams from the Eastern Conference against the Western Conference. The victorious team has proceeds awarded to their charity of choice to make the games more competitive. Starting in 2018, the leading team member from each conference is designated team captain and selects their players during a televised draft. Games are no longer recorded as a win/loss for the conference but rather for the team leader. Prior to the 2018 NBA All-Star Game, the Eastern Conference had won 37 out of 66 total games.

Typically the All-Star is a longer game than traditional NBA games with much fanfare presented when each player is announced prior tip-off. The halftime show is usually longer as a well with concert performances by Mary J. Blige and LL Cool J during the 2000 NBA All-Star Game. This was the first time the halftime show had featured musical entertainment; that tradition continues today. For the 2020 NBA All-Star Game held at the United Center in Chicago, a form of the Elam Ending was implemented. This basketball rule turns the clock off during the fourth quarter and sets an endgame point total. The 2020 game had 24 points added to the third quarter-final score of 133-124, for a target of 157 points. This was to honor Kobe Bryant who had died the previous month in a helicopter crash. The team lead by LeBron James won the game, with a final score of 157-155. NBA All-Star game tickets sell out quickly so be sure to secure your spot today with TicketSmarter.
