2013 NBA Slam Dunk Contest: Time, TV schedule and participants

Like watching people perform acrobatic impossibilities in the air? Then tune in to Saturday's NBA Slam Dunk Contest on TNT.

John E. Sokolowski-USA TODAY Sports

The Denver Nuggets are well-represented in this year's NBA Slam Dunk Contest, with Kenneth Faried being one of the six contestants who hope to drop some jaws Saturday.

Faried will be going up against Indiana's Gerald Green, Toronto's Terrence Ross, New York's James White, Los Angeles' Eric Bledsoe and Utah's Jeremy Evans.

Evans is the defending champion after winning the fan vote in last year's contest, but most oddsmakers currently have White as a 5-4 favorite. Faried is being given the worst odds at 8-1 but as Evans proved last season, being the underdog certainly isn't the worst thing. And if you've watched Faried at all this season then you already know that he has mean, two-handed jams for days.

The scoring and rules for the event can be found here.

Time: 8:30 p.m. EST (fourth event in the All-Star festivities)
