2024 NBA All-Star Format

Since 2018, the NBA All-Star Game has featured an All-Star draft picked by the top vote receiver in each conference. This year, the game will feature the return of its classic format of the Eastern Conference versus the Western Conference.

The NBA also has reinstated the traditional scoring system with four 12-minute quarters. This replaces the untimed fourth quarter in which both teams battled to reach a Final Target Score that had been used since 2020.

Teams will still continue to compete to win each quarter with the winning team receiving money for a charitable organization of their choice.

2024 NBA All-Star Rosters

The NBA released the full voting results for starters on January 25th and on February 1st, the All-Star reserves were announced. Follow the full results and rosters on our NBA All-Star Voting guide
