2024 All-Star Game: Preview and Predictions

With a hectic schedule within the Association, the NBA 2024 All-Star weekend coming to an end, there is only one event left, the 73rd All-Star Game.

Returning to the “conference format” is seemingly a perfect way to give the game a breath of fresh air after the recent years. Who will win East vs. West today? Here are the starters and predictions: 

East Starting Five

G: Tyrese Haliburton (Indiana Pacers)

G: Damian Lillard (Milwaukee Bucks)

F: Jayson Tatum (Boston Celtics)

F: Giannis Antetokounmpo (Milwaukee Bucks, Captain)

C: Bam Adebayo (Miami Heat)***

*** Replacement of Joel Embiid due to injury.

West Starting Five:

G: Shai Gilgeous-Alexander (Oklahoma City Thunder)

G: Luka Doncić (Dallas Mavericks)

F: Kevin Durant (Phoenix Suns)

F: LeBron James (Los Angeles Lakers, Captain)

C: Nikola Jokic (Denver Nuggets)

As we know, the ASG is not exactly a defensive-centered match, which leaves us with the expectation of plenty offensive possessions and opportunities for both teams, and well over 325 points in total.

However, we expect it to be a close game across the board, with every single player putting a show for the fans, preserving the competitive spirit and sportsmanship. The West team seems to fit better in terms of chemistry and play-style, which will ultimately give them the upper hand in the late stages of the match.

All in all, this edition of the ASG will not disappoint whatsoever, closing out a successful, innovative All-Star Weekend in Indianapolis. This marks the final stretch of the regular season, and we could not be more excited for it.

Prediction: West Win
