The stars of the WNBA have descended upon Sin City as the 2023 WNBA All-Star Game will take place tonight from Michelob ULTRA Arena in Las Vegas, NV. The game will tip at 8:30 p.m. ET and will air live in primetime on ABC.

For the second year in a row, A’ja Wilson of the hometown Las Vegas Aces and Breanna Stewart of the New York Liberty were voted on as team captains and the game will feature Team Wilson vs. Team Stewart. This doesn’t come as a shock as the two former MVP’s are anchoring high-powered squads that seem destined to meet each other in the WNBA Finals. Here are the rosters for both teams:

^Unable to play due to injury

As far as the game itself goes, the WNBA has introduced a handful of new rules to increase the excitement and pace of play during the game. A four-point shot will be introduced during the exhibition as four circles (two on each side of the court) will be placed above the three-point line. The game will also feature a 20-second shot clock instead of the usual 24 and there will be no free throw attempts before the final two minutes of the contest/overtime. Any scenario where a player would normally go to the line, they will automatically be rewarded the points.
