NBA All-Star Game Format, Explained

The 2022 NBA All-Star Game will have the same competitive format as the past two NBA All-Star Games, a dynamic that makes every quarter count.

  • The two All-Star teams will compete to win each quarter for their respective charities.
  • Each charity starts the game with a donation of $150,000.
  • Each of the first three quarters will start 0-0 and last 12 minutes. The winner of each 12-minute quarter (first, second and third) will be the team that scores the most points in the quarter.
  • Each quarter brings $100,000 to the winning team’s charity.
  • If both teams score the same number of points in a quarter, the $100,000 charitable donation at stake for that quarter will be split between the two organizations.
  • The fourth quarter will start with each team’s total score after the first three quarters on the main scoreboard.
  • The fourth quarter will not be timed and the teams will play for a final target score, which means the game will end with a successful field goal or free throw instead of an elapsed time.
  • The final target score will be determined by taking the leading team’s total aggregate score over three quarters and adding 24 points – the 24 representing Kobe Bryant’s jersey number.
    • For example, if Team LeBron leads Team Durant with a score of 100-95 after the first three quarters, the final target score is 124 (100 + 24)
  • The first team to reach (or exceed) the final target score will win the NBA All-Star Game.
  • The team that wins the All-Star Game will win $150,000 for their selected charity.
