Having kicked off on Friday night with the Celebrity Game and Rising Stars Tournament, NBA’s 2022 All-Star Weekend continues today with All-Star Saturday Night, as we build up to Sunday’s main event, the 71st annual All-Star Game.

What's on the menu on All-Star Saturday Night?

Ahead of Sunday’s clash between Team LeBron and Team Durant, Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse in Cleveland, Ohio, hosts a trio of events that have become a staple of All-Star Weekend: the Skills Challenge, 3-Point Contest and Slam Dunk Contest.

2021 NBA All-Star Game MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo is the stand-out participant in a Skills Challenge that this year comes with a revamped format. Check out how the event has changed.

The Toronto Raptors' Fred VanVleet and the Brooklyn Nets' Patty Mills appear to be the favourites to win the 3-Point Contest, while the Houston Rockets' Jalen Green is being tipped to come out on top in the Slam Dunk Contest.

Earlier on Saturday, there’s also the first ever NBA x HBCU Classic, as Morgan State take on Howard University in a showcase game as part of the league’s efforts to support historically Black colleges and universities in the United States.

“The NBA HBCU Classic during the celebration of Black History Month highlights the important mission of historically Black colleges and universities and the critical role they play in our country,” Morgan State’s interim athletic director, Erlease Wagner, said.
