Watch an NBA All-Star Game live stream

The NBA All-Star Game returns to its traditional format for 2024, eschewing the draft element for a good, old-fashioned bit of Eastern Conference vs Western Conference action. Fans in the US can watch the NBA All-Star Game live on TNT, TBS, TruTV and Max. In the UK, it's on TNT Sports and Discovery Plus.

Bucks duo Giannis Antetokounmpo and Doc Rivers combine to lead the Eastern Conference team, with LeBron James – playing in the All-Star Game for a record 20th time, once more than the great Kareem Abdul-Jabbar – captaining the Western Conference, with Chris Finch on coaching duties.

Paolo Banchero, Scottie Barnes, Jalen Brunson and Tyrese Maxey are about to get their first taste of the NBA All-Star Game, though there's no place for Victor Wembanyama. The young superstar would do well to remember that LeBron missed out on a callup in his rookie season too.

The move back to the usual format means there'll be four 12-minute quarters and no Final Target Score, but regardless, the numbers are always outrageously high, as every player becomes a swaggering, showboating Harlem Globetrotter for the night.

Below, we explain where to watch 2024 NBA All-Star Game live streams from anywhere in the world.
