The Skills Challenge that Tyrese Maxey attempted to complete was unsuccessful because of a problem with the LED court arrows. 

NBA Commissioner Adam Silver and league executives aim to make the All-Star Game more competitive after the previous season's 184–175 game. 

Hall of Famer Larry Bird expressed hope that the league's message would resonate and players would take the All-Star Game more seriously. 

The 74th NBA All-Star Game will take place on February 16, 2025, at Chase Centre in San Francisco, the Golden State Warriors' home arena. 

Damian Lillard of the Milwaukee Bucks was awarded the All-Star Game MVP after scoring 39 points, helping the Eastern Conference secure a 211-186 victory over the West. 

Lillard became only the second player in league history to win a Saturday night event and receive the MVP award during the same All-Star Weekend, joining Michael Jordan. 

Lillard faced tough competition from his Eastern Conference teammates, including Indiana Pacers point guard Tyrese Haliburton and Boston Celtics shooting guard Jaylen Brown. 

The award was given to Lillard, who received seven votes out of a total of twelve, while Haliburton received the remaining five votes.  

Lillard's performance was crucial to the East's effort to maintain control of the game, especially when the West narrowed the lead to 12 points.
