The NBA All-Star Game 2012 is today. Here's how to watch online via live stream.

The NBA All-Star Game 2012 starts Sunday (Feb. 26) at 7:30 p.m. EST at the Amway Center in Orlando, Fla., and is likely to be one of the league's most-watched events this year.

Before the game gets under way, there will be a 4 p.m. concert, and pre-game coverage of the game stars at 6 p.m.

The events are part of NBA All-Star Weekend, which began Friday, and the big game pits East and West in a classic showdown.

The contest will be broadcast on live TV on TNT. To determine which channel is TNT on your cable provider, consult channel information for Time Warner Cable, DirecTV, Dish and Comcast, which is available on their Web sites.

It will also be available to watch via online live stream, which you can access by clicking this link, which will take you to NBA TV.

Or, in a move we don't endorse or suggest, you can just do a Web search for NBA All-Star Game to see if you can find a site that will allow you to watch it for free but not necessarily legally. Don't do this unless you're willing to face whatever consequences may result from doing so. The best way to enjoy the NBA Slam Dunk Contest 2012 may just be to watch it on good old cable TV.
