The best players in the NBA will assemble in Orlando this weekend to try and pay off for their respective conferences on the All-Star Game odds and slam dunk props.

And the Eastern Conference will be looking to use its home-court advantage on Sunday to get some revenge for last year's 148-143 loss to the Western Conference at Los Angeles' Staples Center.

Orlando Magic star center Dwight Howard is part of the East's starting lineup for Sunday, along with the Miami Heat's LeBron James and Dwyane Wade, the New York Knicks' Carmelo Anthony, and the Chicago Bulls' Derrick Rose.

The Western Conference's starting lineup features the Los Angeles Lakers' Kobe Bryant and Andrew Bynum, the Los Angeles Clippers' Chris Paul and Blake Griffin, and the Oklahoma City Thunder's Kevin Durant.

Saturday night will feature the All-Star Game's skills events, including the Slam Dunk Competition and the Three Point Contest.
