The 2021 All-Star Game matchup between Team Lebron and Team Durant, with the starting rosters officially set. This year, things will look a little different with each 2021 All-Star event, including the game and skills competitions, taking place on the same night at the State Farm Arena in Atlanta, Georgia.

The game and all skills contest events, including the Skills Challenge, 3-Point Contest and Slam Dunk Contest will all be broadcast on TNT. Coverage for the day’s events starts at 5:00 p.m. ET, with the Skills Challenge and 3-Point Contest starting at 6:30. Tip-off is set for 8:00 p.m., and they’ll hold the Slam Dunk Contest at halftime.

If you aren’t around a TV to check out this primetime NBA matchup, you can stream the game on Watch TNT or via their mobile app. But keep in mind that you need a cable-login subscription. If you don’t have a cable login to access TNT for live stream, you can get a free trial from YouTube TV, Hulu with Live TV, AT&T TV Now, FuboTV, or Sling TV to stream the game.

Team LeBron is headlined by LeBron James, who will be making his 17th NBA All-Star Game appearance. James will be joined by Luka Doncic, Stephen Curry, Nikola Jokic, and Giannis Antetokounmpo in the starting lineup. The reserves for Team LeBron are Jaylen Brown, Paul George, Rudy Gobert, Damian Lillard, Domantas Sabonis, Ben Simmons, and Chris Paul. Utah Jazz head coach Quin Synder will coach Team LeBron.

Team Durant will be missing its captain as Kevin Durant is out with an injury. Jayson Tatum was named as a starter in place of Durant. Joining Tatum in the starting lineup will be Joel Embiid, Kyrie Irving, Bradley Beal, and Kawhi Leonard. The reserves for Team Durant are Mike Conley (replacing Devin Booker), James Harden, Zach LaVine, Donovan Mitchell, Julius Randle, Nikola Vucevic, and Zion Williamson. Philadelphia 76ers head coach Doc Rivers will coach Team Durant.
