All-Star Pre-Gamin’: Team Giannis vs. Team LeBron (7:00 CT) – Broadcast Info, Team Draft, Thread

Chicago Bulls

The All-Star Game is upon us!

Unlike last season, the Chicago Bulls will not be one of the rare teams with a dynamic duo on the All-Star Game court. However, they will at least have some representation with DeMar DeRozan suiting up for the SIXTH time in his NBA career.

I hope everyone is ready for him to go a perfect 18-18 from the mid-range and win All-Star Game MVP!

Remember, the All-Star Game now ends when a team hits a certain target score.

Each of the first three quarters will start with a 0-0 score. Then, before the 4th quarter gets underway, the cumulative score will be added together for each squad and 24 points will be added to the end of the winning team’s score to determine the number that must be reached to win the game.

The NBA describes the full rules here.
