How To Watch

Air Canada Centre, Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
5:30 p.m. PST
TNT | NBA.com/AllStar

★★★

The Association's brightest stars will be on full display at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto for NBA All-Star Saturday night. The action starts at 5:30 p.m. PST on TNT with the Skills Challenge.

Golden State's own Draymond Green will participate as part of a star-studded front court group, which also includes Anthony Davis, Karl Anthony-Towns and DeMarcus Cousins. Vegas sportsbook Bovada currently lists Isaiah Thomas (+240) as the favorite to win the event.

2016 NBA Skills Challenge Odds

Isaiah Thomas: +240
C.J. McCollum: +350
Draymond Green: +400
Jordan Clarkson: +650
DeMarcus Cousins: +1000
Anthony Davis: +1200
Karl Anthony-Towns: +1500

★★★
Stephen Curry (EVEN) can become the first player to win back-to-back three-point contests since Jason Kopono won his second consecutive title in 2008.

Curry is the obvious favorite. I can try to put Curry's ridiculously mind blowing three-point shooting this season into some sort of perspective. He has more made three-pointers at this year's break (249), than anyone not named Stephen Curry made in the entire 2014-2015 NBA season.

2016 NBA Three-Point Contest Odds

Stephen Curry: EVEN
Klay Thompson: +400
J.J. Redick: +450
Devin Booker: +750
Kyle Lowry: +750
James Harden: +1200
Khris Middleton: +1600
Chris Bosh: +1600

★★★
Minnesota Timberpup Zach LaVine (-300) will try to follow up a spectacular dunk contest performance from a season ago. San Jose product Aaron Gordon, Will Barton and Andre Drummond make up the field in which LaVine is a heavy favorite according to Bovada.

2016 NBA Slam Dunk Contest Odds

Zach LaVine: -300
Aaron Gordon: +400
Will Barton: +550
Andre Drummond: +850
Kyle Lowry: +750
James Harden: +1200
Khris Middleton: +1600
Chris Bosh: +1600
