Knicks, Nets co-hosts


The New York Knicks and Brooklyn Nets are working together to split the NBA All-Star weekend in New York City in 2015. The game will be played Feb. 15 at Madison Square Garden and the slam dunk contest and other skills events held at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. The league last split sites for its midseason showcase in 2010, when the Saturday events were in the Dallas Mavericks’ arena and the game was held at the Cowboys’ stadium. The game was last held at Madison Square Garden in 1998 in what turned out to be Michael Jordan’s final All-Star appearance with the Bulls and Kobe Bryant’s first overall. – AP
