NBA All-Star 2023: Top moments from All-Star Game

The 2023 NBA All-Star Weekend kicked off Friday with the celebrity game and Rising Stars Challenge, but now it is nearly time for the marquee event — the All-Star Game.

For the first time ever, the NBA used a playground draft format that included team captains LeBron James and Giannis Antetokounmpo making their selections right before the game.

If there was a singular winner of All-Star Saturday, it was Philadelphia 76ers guard and slam dunk contest champion Mac McClung. McClung, who is on a two-way contract with the Sixers and their G-League affiliate, the Delaware Blue Coats, dominated the competition, receiving a score of 50 on all but one dunk.

The event’s host state of Utah dominated the day otherwise. The Utah Jazz trio of Jordan Clarkson, Jabari Smith Jr. and Collin Sexton cruised to victory in the skills challenge, and Damian Lillard, who played at Weber State in nearby Ogden, secured another win for Utah by coming out on top in the 3-point contest.
