Thunder @ Bulls, United Center March 5th
Starting price $79 | Average price $119
The duel with the Thunder is not much significant, considering the fact Oklahoma is a Western Conference team. However, this is the only visit of Kevin Durant and the OKC Thunder to Chicago this year. The teams will play their annual two games in March, with Chicago hosting the first duel. View Bulls versus Thunder Tickets for the United Center.

Bulls @ Pacers Bankers Life Fieldhouse March 6th
Starting price $32 | Average price $57
This game will show the character and the resilience of the Bulls. Following a tough home game versus the Thunder, the Bulls are on the road the next night, playing in Indiana. While the Pacers are not a team that should strike fear in Bulls’s eyes, they are a division rival and a chance for an easy win for the Bulls. View Pacers versus Bulls Tickets for the Bankers Life Fieldhouse.

Bulls @ Spurs, AT&T Center March 8th
Starting price $51 | Average price $74
To say that the first 10 days of March are brutal for the Bulls would be an understatement. They play the Clippers, the Warriors, the Thunder and the Spurs in a span of just 8 days. The Bulls managed to beat the Champions in Chicago, but now they will be faced with the task of getting a win in San Antonio, something few teams have managed to pull this season. View Spurs versus Bulls Tickets for the AT&T Center.

Grizzlies @ Bulls United Center March 9th
Starting price $42 | Average price $84
As things cannot get harder for the Bulls, the night after they play in San Antonio, they must travel back home to host the Grizzlies. Playing a back to back is hard enough if you play at home, but going back and forth through the country takes a toll on players. And when the opponent is the Grizzlies, and their stiff defense, the Bulls have a challenging task. View Bulls versus Grizzlies Tickets for the United Center.

Raptors @ Bulls United Center March 20th
Starting price $62 | Average price $79
The Bulls beat the Raptors twice this season. And while some might think that was an easy task, the reality is that the Raptors are the second best team in the East. And they will be extra motivated playing versus a team they’ve lost two times. The teams will meet two times in March, with the Bulls hosting the first duel, and Raptors hosting the second on March 25. View Bulls versus Raptors Tickets for the United Center.

Miami Heat AA Center

Miami Heat Ticket Prices Down 31% Since Lebron Left

Nobody expected the Heat to contend for a title without LeBron James, but the team is a lot better than the 8th seed in the East. Truth be told, Miami has injury issues with Chris Bosh and other valuable players. But the biggest problem is they have troubles winning at home. Their home record is 7-12, and is something they need to fix as soon as possible, if they want to hang on that 8th or 7th spot in the East. Their most important remaining games are home games, and most of them are winnable.

Miami Heat rank 5th in attendance at the American Airlines Center averaging 19,710 versus their 2013 season average of 19,982 which is only down 1.36%. On the road the Heat are drawing and average of 17,638 (92.6%) versus their 2013 season where their average was 19,090 a 7.60% drop. Miami Heat ticket prices for games at the American Airlines Center averaged $140.00 a ticket on the secondary market during the 2013-14 season and have fallen 31% currently to $96.00 per ticket on average.

Here is a look at the Top Five Heat Games Coming Up.

Pacers @ Heat, American Airlines Arena, January 23rd,
Starting price $33, Average price $79 (down -49.35%)
The Pacers beat the Heat twice this season, and are closing the gap for that last playoff spot. The Heat cannot tolerate losing at home from teams lower in the rankings, and if they want to turn the season around, they better start taking care of business at home. They will have few chances in January to do so. View all Heat vs Pacers Tickets for the American Airlines Arena.

Heat @ Pistons, The Palace of Auburn Hills, February 3rd,
Starting price $5, Average price $54 (down -43.15%)
The Pistons are the team that surges towards the playoffs. Since the Josh Smith trade, they have won seven in a row. This puts pressure on the Heat, who must secure their playoff spot by beating Detroit. They can start with the first matchup between the two that will be played in Detroit. View Detroit Piston tickets vs the Miami Heat at The Palace of Auburn Hills.

Knicks @ Heat, American Airlines Arena, February 9th,
Starting price $41, Average price $146 (down -43.19%)
When you are fighting for a playoff spot, there is no place for sympathy. The Heat must take full advantage of the mess that is happening in New York and pile up some wins versus weak teams. A Knicks team without a legitimate threat outside Carmelo Anthony is an easy target, but sometimes, those targets can turn out to be dangerous surprises. Miami cannot afford that. View Heat vs Knicks tickets for the American Airlines Arena.

Heat @ Cavaliers, Quicken Loans Arena, February 11th,
Starting price $75, Average price $165 (down -24.24%)
From an emotional standpoint, it will be good for the Heat to get this over with. Lebron was in Miami, and the Heat won. Now, Miami will visit Lebron and his new looking Cavaliers team for the first time this season. While they might be friends off the court, it is evident that on the court, everything is different when these two teams meet. View Cavaliers vs Heat tickets for the Quicken Loans Arena.

Lakers @ Heat, American Airlines Arena, March 4th,
Starting price $63, Average price $202 (down -37.84%)
The Lakers are another team that the Heat must beat both at home and on the road in order to stockpile some wins. But the Lakers pose a special treat, given the history of Dwayne Wade and Kobe Bryant and their epic duels. Few years ago, they were considered the best shooting guards in the league, and their head to head duels were beyond words. Aside from Kobe, the Lakers have some other interesting weapons, such as Boozer and Lin. View Heat vs Lakers Tickets for the American Airlines Arena.

Boston Celtics Ticket Prices

Celtics Tickets Prices Down 56% In 2015

It seems like just a season ago the Celtics were on top of the world and had an average ticket price of $150.00 a ticket. The average Celtics ticket price for games at the TD Garden have fallen to an average price of $66.00 per ticket on the secondary market currently and giving the opportunity for the Boston Strong to get some great deals on Celtics Tickets even though they are rebuilding.

For the Celtics, this season is officially over. All what is left is to see how high they will rank in the draft order. Ideally, the Celtics would love to be lower, but it is hard to believe they can fall to the top 5, even with Rajon Rondo traded. The remaining games are all for improving the youngsters, especially Marcus Smart, and a chance to boost the value of some of the veterans, so they can trade them. However, there are games that matter and can be fun.

Celtics versus Mavericks, January 2, Starting price $84, Average price $153
All you need to know about the importance of this game, is that the Celtics increased the price of the tickets. This will be the first return of Rajon Rondo, who was traded to the Mavericks just few days before. Aside from Ray Allen, all members of the Championship team in 2008 got a warm welcome to the Garden, and Rondo should be no exception. View all Celtics vs Mavericks tickets for the TD Garden.

Celtics @ Knicks, February 3, Starting price $44, Average price $103
The green team makes their annual visit at the Madison Square Garden, an arena famous as much as the TD Garden in Boston. Both teams are in the bottom of the Atlantic Division, but that doesn’t mean their duel will be less interesting. The teams have been rivals for years, and having a weaker team won’t stop that rivalry.View all Knicks tickets for the Celtics game at Madison Square Garden.

Celtics @ Lakers, February 22, Starting price $47, Average price $127
The duel between the two storied franchises will always attract attention, even when both are fighting for a higher draft pick. It will be a long time before any of the teams compete for a championship, but they will endure, as they have in the past. And the Lakers still have Kobe Bryant, one player that loves competing with Boston due to the history of the two teams. View all Lakers vs Celtics Tickets for the Staples Center.

Celtics @ Pacers, March 14, Starting price $6, Average price $63
Neither team will admit it openly, but both are hoping for a higher draft pick. Their duels might be direct factor in the draft order, as they are very close in the East rankings. The Pacers, at least on paper, are trying to get to the playoffs, but that is a pipe dream. With Paul George sidelined by the end of the season, and considering their salary situation, getting a high draft pick is a valuable asset for the future. View all Pacers vs Celtics tickets for the Bankers Life Field House.

Celtics versus Raptors, April 14, Starting price $15, Average price $45
The Celtics close out the season in Milwaukee the following night, but they say goodbye to their fans at the Garden versus what is now the clear winner of the Atlantic Division, Toronto Raptors. It will be a nice chance for the fans to show respect to their team for the last time this season, and hope that the next one will be better. The Celtics have chance to remake their roster this summer. View all Celtics vs Raptors tickets for the TD Garden.

Warriors win championship

Thunder & Cavaliers Top Warriors Tickets In January

The Warriors are starting the New Year with their first four games playing at home, in Oracle Arena. The team that is hottest in the NBA, and arguably looking like the best title contender, will host some of the better quality teams in January. But with the way Stephen Curry, Clay Thompson and Co. are playing, it looks like nothing can stop them. They are winning ugly games, they are winning high scoring games, and everything in between. Curry is a legitimate MVP candidate, and Steve Kerr has made some adjustments that has placed the Warriors in top 10 for both offensive and defensive rating. Here is the Warriors ticket prices and schedule for their home games at the Oracle Arena in January.

Warriors vs Raptors, January 2, Average price $104

If DeMar DeRozan is healthy and ready to go, this might be the duel of the two best teams from each conference. The Raptors might still be No.1 in the East, but without DeRozan, they are a different team. And with him in the lineup, fans will get a chance to see two of the best backcourts in the league: Curry + Thompson vs Lowry + DeRozan.Warriors vs Raptors tickets start at $58.00.

Warriors vs Thunder, January 5, Average price $113

The Warriors won the first matchup, but that was without Durant and Westbrook in the lineup. With its dynamic duo back and healthy, the Thunder are rolling. Games versus the Warriors and other elite teams in the West are measuring stick, and Durant would sure love to send a message. OKC might not be in the top 4 in the rankings by then, but they will be there by the end of the season.Warriors vs Thunder tickets start at $52.00.

Warriors vs Pacers, January 7, Average price $67

Even without Paul George, the Pacers are a good defensive team. Roy Hibbert is back to his usual self, and under Coach Frank Vogel, the Pacers will defend. The problem is their scoring, and versus the defense of the Warriors, points do not come easy. This should be an easy win for the Warriors, but you never know.Warriors vs Pacers tickets start at $31.00.

Warriors vs Cavaliers, January 9, Average price $200

The Cavaliers are starting to figure things out, which should serve as a great building block for an amazing game. Throw in the fact that the Warriors had the chance to trade for Kevin Love, but choose to stick with the Splash Brothers instead, and there is enough intrigue to make this game one for the ages. And we haven’t even got to the point guard duel of two magicians with the ball.Warriors vs Cavaliers tickets start at $145.00.

Warriors vs Heat, January 14, Average price $185

As with many other teams they faced this season, the Warriors routed the Heat in their first matchup. This time, they will be playing on a second night of a back to back set, having played in Utah the previous night. But with the way the Heat are playing, and the injuries they are facing, they might be an easy prey for the Warriors.Warriors vs Heat tickets start at $25.00.

Warriors vs Nuggets, January 19, Average price $45

The game will feature two point guards selected in the 2009 draft, with Curry going 7th and Ty Lawson going 18th to the Nuggets. It was a point guard heavy class, and five years later, we see how good some of the prospects have developed. Lawson and Curry are arguably the two best point guards of the class, and they will have the chance to go head to head.Warriors vs Nuggets tickets start at $29.00.

Warriors vs Rockets, January 21, Starting price $32, Average price $80

The Houston Rockets and Warriors met two times this season, and GSW won both duels by a wide margin. However, things will be different now with Dwight Howard in the lineup, and looking spry as ever. James Harden couldn’t take the Warriors by himself, but he will have his big guy helping him in this one. The duel between Harden and the Splash brothers is interesting enough, with all three players able to go 30+ points on a given night, but toss in Howard and things are even more interesting.Warriors vs Rockets tickets start at $32.00.

Warriors vs Kings, January 23, Average price $75

How quickly things change in the NBA. The Kings were looking great in November, and were challenging for a playoff spot. Then Demarcus Cousins got hurt, and the Kings are falling. They fired their coach, and until they hire new one and install an identity, they will be an easy target for all teams, especially title contenders such as the Warriors.Warriors vs Kings tickets start at $44.00.

Warriors vs Celtics, January 25, Average price $67

If Rajon Rondo is still wearing green by this time, this will be one hell of a matchup. While nothing is imminent, there are rumors the Cs might trade him. But while in green, he lives for moments and matchups like these. Rondo loves going versus the elite point guards, and Curry is a challenge enough to motivate Rondo, the triple double machine.Warriors vs Celtics tickets start at $44.00.

Warriors vs Bulls, January 27, Average price $70

Two days after facing Rondo, Curry will have to face Derrick Rose, another great point guard. But Curry is no stranger to facing elite guards and shooting all over them. He has become so versatile and impossible to guard, as he can shoot, pass, dribble, drive to the basket and everything in between. The Chicago Bulls however, pose a challenge due to their stiff defense. Another interesting matchup is Butler vs Thompson, two young shooting guards on the rise. Warriors vs Bulls tickets start at $27.00.

Warriors vs Suns, January 31, Average price $84

Playing on the second night of a back to back is a challenge enough. Going against three guards and their fast tempo is even more challenging. An added bonus for the matchup is the first duel between the two. The Phoenix Suns are one of the few teams to have beaten the Warriors this season. Warriors vs Suns tickets start at $45.00.

Clippers vs Timberwolves, December 1, Starting price $6, Average price $45
The Timberwolves are a young team, and this will be the first time the first round pick Andrew Wiggins comes to town. He might not be ready for stardom, and is still a work in progress, but the kid shows flashes from time to time about how great he can be. The duel could be a lot more fun if Rubio wasn’t injured, but there is still enormous potential for an exciting game. Minnesota is a lottery team, but the guys play hard, they compete for 48 minutes, and provide a highlight or two. Clippers vs Timberwolves tickets are still available.

Clippers vs Magic, December 3, Starting Price $7, Average price $48
Tobias Harris, Nikola Vucevic, Victor Oladipo and Elfrid Payton are a young core that can do some serious damage in the next 2-3 years. For now, Vucevic is the only proven player from the group. The Serbian center can go for 20 and 20 at any given night, and the Clippers must contain him in order to win. Deandre Jordan will have his hands full, but he might serve a poster for Vucevic.You can purchase Clippers vs Magic tickets for the Staples Center.

Clippers vs Pelicans, December 6, Starting Price $18, Average price $50
Blake Griffin versus Anthony Davis! Can the casual fan ask for more? Probably not. Two of the best power forwards in the league go head to head in a matchup that should provide enough entertainment and highlights. Davis is arguably the MVP of the first month, and if he continues his strong play, and the Pelicans make the playoffs, there is no reason he should not win it. The Pelicans will visit the Clippers once more this season, but at the moment, both teams are at full strength and playing good basketball. Purchase Clippers vs Pelicans tickets.

Clippers vs Suns, December 8, Starting price $7, Average Price $73
Two seasons ago, Eric Bledsoe was backing up Chris Paul. Now he is running his show in Phoenix, where Coach Jeff Hornacek has the Suns playing hard and at a fast pace. Besides Bledsoe, the Suns have two more point guards that can cause damage in Dragic and Thomas. But none of them comes close to the level of CP3 and his playmaking and shot making abilities. And the Suns frontline is weak compared to the big guys the Clippers boast. The Clippers already beat the Suns on 15th November. Order Clippers vs Suns tickets today.

Clippers vs Pistons, December 15, Starting Price $10, Average Price $62
Few teams can match the frontline of the Clippers, and the Pistons are one of them. Their record doesn’t reflect their talent, but Andre Drummond is a beast, and Greg Monroe is one of the best copies of Tim Duncan and his sound and fundamental post game. The Pistons are still figuring things out, but they can be dangerous. And they are the Eastern Conference team leader in alley-oops with Drummond reaching for every ball that comes close to the basket.Order Clippers vs Pistons tickets today.

Clippers vs Pacers, December 17, Starting price $6, Average Price $80
Even without Paul George and Lance Stephenson, Indiana has managed to hang in the top 8 in the East. After a few games, the team is playing motivated and engaged. The Pacers already have some quality wins (versus Dallas, Miami and Chicago), and there is no reason to doubt they will bring their A game. Roy Hibbert and David West are a good inside duo, posing challenges for Griffin and Jordan. CP3 might have his way with the point guards of Indiana, but he will need help to carry the Clippers in this one. Order Clippers vs Pacers tickets today.

Clippers vs Bucks, December 20, Starting price $23, Average price $39
Giannis Antetokounmpo is a reason enough to tune into this game. The Greek Freak is playing excellent basketball at the moment. Coach Jason Kidd has his team playing inspiring basketball, and his players give their all. Few people had the Bucks at No.4 in the East going into December, but the Bucks are going back to their “Fear the Deer” campaign. They are a dangerous team, and rookie Jabari Parker is playing better by the day. Order Clippers vs Bucks tickets today.

Clippers vs Warriors, December 25, Starting Price $72, Average Price $104
These two teams have a long history in the past few years. Every matchup brings tension as a playoff game, and players from both teams have admitted they do not like each other. They’ve met in the 2014 playoffs, with the Clippers advancing. But this year, with Steve Kerr on the coaching seat, the Warriors are playing even more efficient basketball with more ball movement. The Splash Brothers are killing it, and Curry is a time bomb waiting to happen. The Warriors are second in the Western Conference, just a half game behind Memphis going into December. Not to mention, a Christmas matchup is always a special one. Order Clippers vs Warriors tickets for their Christmas Day game at Staples Center today.

Clippers vs Raptors, December 27, Starting Price $37, Average Price $75
The Raptors have been arguably the best team in the league over the first month. They lost to the Western leading Grizzlies to close out November, but they are still the best in the East. Nobody expected them to be this good, but they are proving experts wrong. Fresh off an extension, Kyle Lowry has matured into a great leader at the point guard position. While many see the highlights from Demar Derozan and Terrence Ross, Lowry is the machine that carries the Raptors. A matchup with CP3 is a great chance for Lowry to show his worth. Purchase Clippers vs Raptors Tickets today.

Clippers vs Jazz, December 29, Starting Price $27, Average Price $59
After wining some games to start the season, the Jazz are back where they belong, in the lottery. They should stay there for a season or two more, but they have solid young guys that can be dangerous. Gordon Hayward is one of them, and this season, the Clippers are having troubles with small forwards. Hayward has proven he is worth the money Utah put in him, and he might go off versus the Clippers. The team from Los Angeles won the first meeting between the teams. Purchase Clippers vs Jazz tickets today.

Clippers vs Knicks, December 31, Starting Price $40, Average Price $160
There are few things that are more entertaining on New Year’s Eve than a matchup between the Clippers and the Knicks. Fate didn’t let Carmelo and CP3 to play together, so they must compete against each other. The Knicks are still adjusting to the triangle, and Melo is having back issues, but he should be healthy for the game.

Who Are Most Underrated NBA Players entering the 2014-15 Season

Every basketball fan knows who LeBron James and Kobe Bryant are, but many less dedicated fans probably would not recognize a smaller name player such as Marquis Teague. Many of these players hold their teams together; however, go unnoticed to the common basketball fan. Here’s a list of the most underrated, unappreciated players in the NBA for this coming season:

Mirza Teletovic: At Brooklyn Nets games, Teletovic lighting up the court with his spot on shooting is a common sight; however, unless you are a big Nets fan you have probably never heard of him. Teletovic is a matchup problem for defenders because he can knock down shots from basically anywhere on the court—especially from behind the ark.

Anderson Varajeo: Varajeo is a fan favorite in Cleveland—he is an exciting player to watch, a terrific offensive and defensive rebounder, and a top-notch rim protector. He is an all-around team player and one of LeBron’s favorite teammates, and in James’s absense he has provided the veteran leadership the Cavaliers needed. He is a big reason that Cleveland improved every year after James left.

Luis Scola: Scola has played for three teams and seems to fly under the radar on each one. Scola has plays a good amount coming off the bench, and is very efficient with the time he gets on the court. His overall numbers have dropped slightly with the Indiana Pacers since he does not get as much playing time as he used to, but he is still a terrific inside shooter and team player.

Larry Sanders: Sanders is arguably the best shot blocker in the NBA, and his injury problems this past season were a big part of Milwaukee’s horrible record. With Sanders healthy and Jabari Parker joining the squad, the Bucks should see some decent improvements this season.

Omer Asik: The New Orleans Pelicans acquired the big man from the Houston Rockets this offseason, and he should prove to be a great addition to the team. Asik has always struggled on the offensive side of the ball, but he has improved significantly as his career has progressed, and he has always been a great defender in the NBA. Now that he will be playing alongside Anthony Davis his talent may start to be recognized.

Nick Collison: Anyone that watches the Oklahoma City Thunder regularly could tell you that Collison is one of the hardest workers in the NBA. Although he does not score much, Collison hustles on every play and is one of the better defenders in the league. The Thunder can always count on him for an energy boost late in the game.

Chris Bosh: Bosh may have been part of Miami’s “Big 3″; however, he was always the least respected of the three guys. With LeBron leaving the Miami Heat, Bosh will be the go to guy in Miami this season; so he will be putting up the kind of numbers he used to with the Toronto Raptors and hopefully earn the respect he deserves as a super star in the NBA.

Is Danny Granger the Clippers Missing Piece?

LA Clippers Danny Granger

Danny Granger

The Philadelphia 76ers just recently announced that they agreed on a buyout with forward Danny Granger, who was acquired by the Indiana Pacers in exchange for Evan Turner and Lavoy Allen. Granger is now set to become a free-agent and the Los Angeles Clippers appear to be the frontrunners for his acquisition. So what can he really bring to the team? Is he the missing piece for the team on its championship run?

First of all, it’s obvious that Danny Granger was under performing this season. Playing at the shadow of the emerging megastar Paul George and after he experienced a bunch of injuries, Granger was not the player he once used to be this season. The Indiana Pacers were no longer his team. The former All-Star played in 29 games this season and started in just a couple of them. He averaged 8.3 points per contest go to along with 3.6 rebounds and he shot a ugly rates, 35.9 percent from the floor and 33.0 percent from downtown. However, he has the potential to bounce back and uplift his performance.

Danny Granger Clippers

Danny Granger

Granger seems to be a perfect fit in the Clips’ playoff puzzle. If he is acquired by the team, he will most probably be assigned with the starting small forward role. Granger has the size and the athletic skills to be a great perimeter threat, which can also drive to the basket. Of course, he is not as explosive as he once was, but after all, the Clippers don’t need him to be that type of a player.

Thankfully, the Clips have Chris Paul and Blake Griffin, who will continue to take the biggest chunk of the offensive load on their shoulders. So where Granger is needed is to spot up and hit some open shots, especially from beyond the arc. In general, Granger will be a big upgrade in the Clippers wing. That’s because Doc Rivers is currently using Matt Barnes at the starting small forward role. Although Barnes is a serviceable forward, he is not a big scoring threat, especially from downtown. His fellow small forward, Jarred Dudley, who was acquired during the past summer has been struggling to find consistency all season long. In fact, he was demoted to a reserve, after starting for the Clippers earlier in the season.

In conclusion, we can fairly say that Danny Granger is certainly a missing piece for the Los Angeles Clippers. He might not be the player who will take the team by the hand and lead it to the championship. However, after the addition of Glen Davis, the Los Angeles Clippers have the opportunity to add yet another piece in their puzzle. Granger is the best player available out there at the moment and the Clips shouldn’t let this opportunity slip off their hands. Granger will be an essential player come playoff time for Doc Rivers.

Special Preview: NBA All-Star Weekend 2012

NBA All-Star Weekend 2012 officially kicks off Friday in Orlando. Here’s a schedule of all the top-tier All-Star Weekend events.

Usually known as the Rookie/Sophomore Game, the 2012 edition of the Rising Stars Challenge is different because TNT analysts Shaquille O’Neal and Charles Barkley selected the rosters from a pool of the top first- and second-year players. Reigning Rookie of the Year winner Blake Griffin of the Los Angeles Clippers and New York Knicks sensation Jeremy Lin headline Team Shaq. Top overall draft choice Kyrie Irving of the Cleveland Cavaliers and versatile big-man DeMarcus Cousins of the Sacramento Kings anchor Team Chuck.

All-Star Saturday Night opens with the Haier Shooting Stars, which pits the defending champion Team Atlanta against Team Orlando, Team New York, and Team Texas.

The next event is the Taco Bell Skills Challenge, in which six of the league’s top point guards battle to complete an obstacle course that tests their dribbling, passing, and shooting ability. Steph Curry of the Golden State Warriors, the defending champion, will take on Irving, Tony Parker of the San Antonio Spurs, John Wall of the Washington Wizards, Russell Westbrook of the Oklahoma City Thunder, and Deron Williams of the New Jersey Nets.

The Foot Locker Three-Point Contest follows the Skills Challenge in which Magic forward Ryan Anderson will challenge the defending champion James Jones of the Miami Heat. Other competitors include Mario Chalmers of the Miami Heat, Kevin Durant of Oklahoma City, Kevin Love of the Minnesota Timberwolves, and Anthony Morrow of the New Jersey Nets. Durant replaces Atlanta Hawks swingman Joe Johnson, who will sit out the contest due to injury.

The Sprite Slam Dunk Contest concludes All-Star Saturday Night. This year’s dunk showdown features four players who have never before competed; it’s all fresh faces. In addition, the dunk contest will debut a new, one-round format in which each competitor has the opportunity to execute three dunks. The field is Chase Budinger of the Houston Rockets, Jeremy Evans of the Utah Jazz, Paul George of the Indiana Pacers, and Derrick Williams of Minnesota. Evans replaces Knicks rookie Iman Shumpert, who had to bow out of the competition due to injury.

The main event of the weekend finally tips Sunday evening. Magic center Dwight Howard, the leading vote-getter among all players, will start for the East, while Los Angeles Lakers guard Kobe Bryant will tie a record for consecutive All-Star appearances with 14.
