2017 All-Star NBA Rising Stars Challenge: Rosters, date, time, TV channel, live stream

The best and brightest will be on display on Friday night. The Rising Stars Challenge, known in some circles as the rookie-sophomore game, is a showcase of the league’s best young players. First- and second-year players will be on display in full force, and the game is usually not lacking in spectacular highlights. Dunks, crossovers and lots and lots of threes likely lie in store.

This year’s game will be led by 2015-16 NBA Rookie of the Year Karl-Anthony Towns and Knicks star Kristaps Porzingis. 

The showcase game has gone through several iterations over the years, including an all-rookie version and a rookies-versus-sophomores format. This year’s game will follow the USA vs. World format that was introduced in 2015.
