The NBA All-Star Game 2014 live stream and televised coverage will wrap up with the crowning event of All-Star Weekend on Sunday, Feb. 16, as the Eastern and Western Conferences play for bragging rights. The game, set to take place at the home of the New Orleans Pelicans, will feature most of the regular stars fans are used to seeing, as well as a few new names on the rosters. The latest TV and live stream NBA All-Star coverage arrives Sunday night thanks to the TNT networks.
A Feb. 15 report via NBA.com notes that tonight’s game marks the 63rd NBA All-Star Game and will be covered on more than 90 international television, radio outlets and websites. Sixteen of those will be doing live commentary in languages including French, Greek and Polish. This year’s game, which will take place at Smoothie King Center in New Orleans, is also the 12th consecutive year that the All-Star Game will be shown in prime time on TNT. It’s the 29th season that Turner Sports has handled coverage of the game which features an East team of stars versus a West team.
The Western Conference team will feature two of the Los Angeles Clippers, with Blake Griffin starting, and Chris Paul as a reserve. Griffin has made history as the only Clipper in the history of the franchise to make the team four times with Los Angeles. Paul was last year’s MVP for the game and is only the second player in Clippers’ franchise to capture the award. Randy Smith was the first in 1978.
Joining Griffin as West starters will be Stephen Curry (Warriors), Kevin Love (Timberwolves), Kevin Durant (Thunder) and James Harden (Rockets). Harden is a replacement starter filling in for Kobe Bryant who remains injured. Damian Lillard and LaMarcus Aldridge (Trailblazers) are joined by reserves including Dirk Nowitski (Mavs), Tony Parker (Spurs), Dwight Howard (Rockets) and hometown favorite Anthony Davis of the Pelicans. Scott Brooks of the Oklahoma City Thunder will call plays from the sidelines.
Over on the Eastern Conference team are fan favorites in starters Dwyane Wyade and LeBron James (Heat), Carmelo Anthony (Knicks), Kyrie Irving (Cavs) and Paul George (Pacers). On the East bench will be Miami Heat forward/center Chris Bosh, Pacers center Roy Hibbert, Raptors guard DeMar DeRozan, Nets guard Joe Johnson, Hawks forward Paul Millsap, and Bulls center Joakim Noah, as well as last night’s Slam Dunk contest champion, John Wall of the Washington Wizards. The team will be coached by Indiana’s Frank Vogel.
Current odds for tonight’s game have the Western Conference favored by 4 points at multiple sports books. Meanwhile, the over/under bet is set at 292 total points for the game. Tip-off for the game is just after 8:30 p.m. EST, although coverage starts a bit sooner on TNT.
Sunday night's NBA All-Star Game 2014 edition has a scheduled start time of 8 p.m. EST for TV coverage. The game will be presented in standard and hi-definition via TNT for cable and satellite viewers.
