The Rising Stars challenge hasn’t featured a Clipper since the Eric Bledsoe era, but it’s still a fun event to catch up on all the young talent in the NBA. This is especially interesting right now, as there is a huge influx of young stars who are already significant forces in the NBA.

The game will take place at 9 PM Eastern Time on TNT. It will be preceded by the All Star Celebrity game at 7 PM Eastern on ESPN.
