For the first time in seven years, the City of Stars will host the NBA All-Star game. The event will be held on Sunday, Feb. 18 at Staples Center in Downtown Los Angeles, home of two NBA teams: The Los Angeles Lakers and Los Angeles Clippers.

This year’s competition will be unlike the 66 All-Star match-ups that have come before. The game does not be feature the traditional Eastern versus Western Conference format. Instead, on Oct. 3, 2017, the NBA announced that two team captains, the players with the most fan votes, would draft their teams from an open pool of players regardless of conference affiliation. This year’s captains are the Cleveland Cavalier‘s LeBron James and the Golden State WarriorsStephen Curry.

The All-Star head coaches are from the teams with the best record in both conferences leading up to the game: Mike D’Antoni of the Houston Rockets and Dwane Casey of the Toronto Raptors.

The NBA also announced new incentives to encourage more competition between the teams. The winning players will now get a cash prize of $100,000, while the losing players will only get $25,000. Additionally, the winning team will receive $350,000 and the losing team will receive $150,000 to donate to a local charity of their choosing. Team Stephen will be playing for the Brotherhood Crusade, while Team LeBron will be playing for After-School All-Stars Los Angeles.

The band N*E*R*D will perform at the halftime show. The group members are Chad Hugo, Shay Haley and Pharrell Williams.

For fans making the trip downtown or watching from the comfort of their own home, here are a few facts every viewer should know.
