LeBron James and his squad look to make it 4 All-Star Game wins in a row as they face Team Durant

LeBron James and his favored crew will shoot for their fourth straight NBA All-Star Game victory as they tangle with Team Durant in Atlanta on Sunday, March 7 (Monday, March 8, Manila time).

Team LeBron is tagged as a heavy favorite to win the showpiece event of the All-Star festivities as Team Durant misses several key players, including captain Kevin Durant.

Durant will sit out the game due to a hamstring injury, joining fellow Team Durant star Anthony Davis, who is recovering from a calf and Achilles injury, on the sidelines.

Also, James picked the two captains of the previous All-Star teams he and Team LeBron beat: Stephen Curry and Giannis Antetokounmpo.

James, Curry, and Antetokounmpo form a formidable starting lineup for Team LeBron alongside Nikola Jokic and Luka Doncic.

Completing Team LeBron are Damian Lillard, Jaylen Brown, Paul George, Rudy Gobert, Ben Simmons, Chris Paul, and Domantas Sabonis.

Team Durant, though, does not lack star power either with Joel Embiid, Kyrie Irving, Bradley Beal, Kawhi Leonard, and Jayson Tatum comprising of its starting lineup.

James Harden, Zach Lavine, Donovan Mitchell, Julius Randle, Nikola Vucevic, Zion Williamson, and Mike Conley will come off the bench for Team Durant.

Game time is 9 am.
