NBA Slam Dunk Contest 2013: Participants, start time, TV schedule and more

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 2013 NBA All-Star Game Slam Dunk Contest soars into Houston this Saturday sporting an expanded playing field that features two former champions.

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.

While Evans is back to defend his title, White is actually considering the favorite by most oddsmakers. Green, who won the even back in 2007, should provide some healthy competition as well.

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
