Where is the 2021 NBA All-Star Game? Date, time, place

The 2021 NBA All-Star Game will be hosted by the Indiana Pacers at the Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indiana, Indianapolis.

It will be the second time that the All-Star Game has been played in Indianapolis. The first time came in 1985 when the Western Conference defeated the Eastern Conference by a final score of 140-129 at the Hoosier Dome.

Ralph Sampson of the Houston Rockets was named MVP. He scored 24 points and pulled down 10 rebounds in the win.

"Indianapolis has an enduring love for basketball that creates a special connection to our All-Star Game," commissioner Adam Silver said in 2017. "I want to especially thank Herb Simon for his efforts to bring the All-Star festivities back to Indianapolis as well as acknowledge the strong support we received from Governor Holcomb, Mayor Hogsett, Larry Bird, Rick Fuson and the entire Pacers organization."

The 2021 All-Star Weekend will take place from Feb. 12-14, 2021. It will include top rookies and second-year players in the Rising Stars Challenge on Friday, Feb. 12, followed the next day by the Taco Bell Skills Challenge, the MTN DEW 3-Point Contest and AT&T Slam Dunk during State Farm All-Star Saturday Night.

The league's best players will take the floor on Sunday, Feb. 14 for the 70th All-Star Game in NBA history.

The All-Star Game will then be played in Cleveland, Ohio in 2022, followed by Salt Lake City, Utah in 2023.
