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."
