The 2021 NBA All-Star Game will continue using the format it introduced last year in honor of the late Kobe Bryant.

The news was revealed by The Athletic and Stadium’s Shams Charania, “The NBA will again honor the late Kobe Bryant at March 7 All-Star Game with incorporating 24 points into the calculation of the final target score.”

Last year’s All-Star Game saw a major change in the 4th quarter: the game clock was turned off during the last quarter and either team could win if they reached the “Final Target Score.” The league previously explained, “For example: If the cumulative score of the first three quarters is 100-95, the Final Target Score would be set at 124 points. To win the NBA All-Star Game, the team with 100 points would need to score 24 points in the fourth quarter before the team with 95 points scores 29 points, and vice versa.”

The 2021 NBA All-Star Game takes place March 7 at the Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis.

In related news, Los Angeles Lakers star Anthony Davis will reportedly not return to the lineup until at least after All-Star weekend.
