Budenholzer's Hawks have the East's best record at 35-8, thanks in part to a 14-game winning streak and 28 victories in their last 30 games after Wednesday's 110-91 triumph over Indiana. He will be the first Hawks All-Star coach since Lenny Wilkens for the 1993-94 season.

Kerr, in his first season as a head coach, has the Warriors off to a 34-6 start and will guide the Western Conference All-Stars. Golden State has won a franchise-record 17 straight at home.

The 64th All-Star Game will take place Sunday, Feb. 15 at Madison Square Garden in New York.
