Between Games 2 and 3, there will also be a new event called the "Clorox Clutch Challenge." This features four teams of players participating in a shooting contest. The teams of two will have to make five "iconic shots" that were made by players of the NBA 75th Anniversary Team.

In honor of the league's 75th anniversary, the NBA Rising Stars will be a "Race to 75" instead of a timed clock. The first two games have a point goal of 50, then the final game will only be to 25.
