On Friday, Feb. 18, 28 players will be chosen into four teams coached by 75th Anniversary Team members Rick Barry, Gary Payton, Isiah Thomas, and James Worthy (9 p.m. ET, TNT).
The Rising Stars Draft will have seven rounds, with the NBA players going first, followed by the NBA G League Ignite players. The first round’s choose order will be selected by random drawing, with each round’s pick order reversing.
Instead of the clock running out, each game will have a Final Target Score. It will be a “Race to 75” to commemorate the league’s 75th anniversary – games 1 and 2 will be contested to 50 points; game 3 to 25 points.

How Clorox Clutch Challenge Works
In addition, between Games 2 and 3 of Clorox Rising Stars, a timed shooting competition dubbed the Clorox Clutch Challenge will be held. A total of eight NBA and NBA G League Ignite players will be separated into four teams of two and fight to make shots from five different places on the floor that are linked to iconic shots from the NBA Playoffs. Each team will compete with one shared ball, and its players must alternate shots such that no player shoots twice in a row. Team 1 has 1 minute and 30 seconds (1:30 counting down) to make a shot from each of the five spots in any order. Team 1’s time is then used as the starting point for Team 2. If Team 1’s time is 1:15, Team 2 will have a 1:15 countdown clock to finish the tournament. Each team that sets a new benchmark starts the clock for the next team participating, and the quickest finisher wins the Clorox Clutch Challenge.
