The 2021 NBA All-Star Game is set to take place in Atlanta, Georgia, on March 7. Unlike past All-Star Weekends, this year the Skills Challenge, 3-Point Contest and Dunk Contest will all be held on Sunday as well. The Skills Challenge and 3-Point Contest will be prior to the game, while the Dunk Contest will take place at halftime. The League has already announced starters for the Western and Eastern Conference and have named Captains for each team.
