The 70th NBA All-Star Game will take place at Bankers Life Fieldhouse, home of the Indiana Pacers, on February 14, 2021. This will mark the second NBA All-Star in Indianapolis, which hosted the midseason classic in 1985.
"We are thrilled with the NBA's decision to bring its showcase event, the NBA All-Star Game, to Indianapolis in 2021," said Indiana Governor Eric J. Holcomb. "No state nurtures and loves the game of basketball more than Indiana, and I am certain that my fellow Hoosiers will embrace the game and related events with uncommon passion and support."
NBA All-Star 2021 on-court events at Bankers Life Fieldhouse will include top rookies and second-year players in the Rising Stars on Friday, Feb. 12, followed the next day by the Taco Bell Skills Challenge, the JBL Three-Point Contest and the Verizon Slam Dunk during State Farm All-Star Saturday Night.
Lucas Oil Stadium and the Indiana Convention Center will be among the other venues throughout Indianapolis that will host events, including the NBA All-Star Celebrity Game and NBA All-Star and Rising Stars practices. Several events will feature interactive programming that brings fans of all ages closer to NBA and WNBA players and legends.(ANI)
