2013 NBA Slam Dunk Contest: Time, TV schedule and participants

Like watching people perform acrobatic impossibilities in the air? Then tune in to Saturday's NBA Slam Dunk Contest on TNT.

USA TODAY Sports

The NBA All-Star game is back in the Lone Star State, meaning those who make it out to the Toyota Center Saturday will be treated to the high-flying affair known as the Slam Dunk Contest.

Each conference will have three players this year's challenge with Indiana's Gerald Green, Toronto's Terrence Ross and New York's James White representing the East and Los Angeles' Eric Bledsoe, Utah's Jeremy Evans and Denver's Kenneth Faried representing the West.

Although Evans is back to defend last season's title, most oddsmakers have White as a 5-4 favorite in the contest. Green, who also won a slam dunk title of his own back in 2007, is the third favorite at 4-1 behind the field's youngest competitor, Ross.

The scoring and rules for the event can be found here.

Time: 8:30 p.m. ET (fourth event in the All-Star festivities)

TV: TNT
