As a nod to basketball's rich history in Indiana, the 73rd NBA All-Star Game will revive the classic matchup between the Eastern Conference and the Western Conference, adhering to the traditional scoring system with four 12-minute quarters. While the untimed fourth quarter is no longer part of the format, teams will still compete for each quarter win, with the proceeds benefiting charitable organizations.
