This marks the third time that Cleveland has hosted the All-Star Game. The first time came in 1981, in Richfield, Ohio when the NBA celebrated its 35th season. The league returned in 1997 at the then Gund Arena as the NBA celebrated its 50th anniversary. Cleveland was selected to host the 2022 All-Star game in Nov. 2018.

Viewers in Canada can watch the NBA All-Star Game on Sportsnet. 

They’ll be two options for viewing in the United States this year. On TNT, they’ll be a more traditional broadcast with Kevin Harlan, Reggie Miller and Dwyane Wade who will provide commentary. Veteran reporter Allie LaForce will be on the sideline for the crew. 

Over on TBS, the Inside the NBA crew of Ernie Johnson, Charles Barkley, Draymond Green, Shaquille O’Neal and Kenny Smith will provide an alternate viewing option. 

NBA All-Star Game format, explained

The 2022 NBA All-Star Game will have the same competitive format as the last 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 charitable organizations.
  • Each charitable organization starts the game with a $150,000 donation.
  • Each of the first three quarters will begin with a score of 0-0 and will last 12 minutes. The winner of each 12-minute quarter (first, second and third) will be the team that scores the most points within the quarter.
  • Each quarter is worth $100,000 to the winning team’s charity.
  • If both teams score the same number of points within a quarter, the $100,000 charity donation at stake for that quarter will be split between the two organizations.
  • The fourth quarter will begin with each team’s total score after the first three quarters on the main scoreboard.
  • The fourth quarter will be untimed and the teams will play to a Final Target Score, meaning that the game will end with a made basket or a made free throw instead of with the clock running out.
  • The Final Target Score will be determined by taking the leading team’s total cumulative score through 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 surpass) the Final Target Score will win the NBA All-Star Game.
  • The team that wins the All-Star Game will earn $150,000 for its selected charity.
