The SportsXchange

A new format in the All-Star Saturday festivities will pit the Eastern Conference against the Western Conference, the NBA announced Thursday.

The event, which features the Shooting Stars, Skills Challenge, Three-Point Content and the Slam Dunk Contest, will now be divided by conferences. Also, an All-Star Saturday captain for each conference will be selected prior to the night.

The league said the competitions will earn points for each conference while raising money for charity.
