Players will have 70 seconds - as opposed to the usual 60 - to complete each round, attempting a total of 27 triples following the addition of the new deep spots. As in past years, competitors will have five racks of balls in the customary locations, designating a rack of their choosing as an "all money ball" rack.

Former slam dunk champ Dwight Howard returns to the fold after an 11-year hiatus. The 34-year-old famously came out of a phone booth dressed as Superman during the 2009 edition of the event.
Howard is joined by Aaron Gordon and Derrick Jones Jr., both of whom are looking for redemption after previous runner-up finishes. Zach LaVine, who won't feature in this year's contest, edged Gordon in 2016 despite the latter scoring perfect 50s on three consecutive dunks.

The NBA has revamped its showcase event. Team LeBron and Team Giannis will compete to win each of the first three quarters, with the victor of each frame earning $100,000 for a local Chicago charity. The first three quarters remain 12 minutes in length and will each start with a fresh score of 0-0.
The clock will be turned off for the fourth quarter. A final target score will be set based on the points accumulated by the leading team over the first three frames, plus an additional 24 points in honor of the late Kobe Bryant.
"For example: If the cumulative score of the first three quarters is 100-95, the final target score would be set at 124 points," the league explained in a breakdown of the new format. "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 team that reaches the final target score first earns an additional $200,000 for its charity. Team LeBron will wear No. 2 jerseys and Team Giannis will wear No. 24 jerseys in tribute to Bryant and his daughter, Gianna. The All-Star threads will also feature jersey patches displaying nine stars to represent the lives lost in January's tragic helicopter crash.
