Back to back like the cover of "Lethal Weapon," Drake and Kevin Hart are set to face off in a heated matchup next month in the 6.

With NBA All-Star 2016 taking place in Toronto, Drake and Kevin Hart have been announced as coaches for the Canadian and U.S. teams at the annual NBA All-Star Celebrity Game.

Hart, whose a decorated vet in the Celeb Game (garnering three MVP titles), will run the latter team that consists of “Creed” star Michael B. Jordan, Anthony Anderson, Empire’s Bryshere “Yazz” Gray, Nick Cannon, among others.

Meanwhile, the "6 God" will be managing a squad featuring the likes of Arcade Fire’s Win Butler, Property Brothers’ Jonathan Scott, tennis player Milos Raonic, actor-singer Kris Wu, and NBA vet Rick Fox.

ESPN will televise the hot matchup in the 6 when it goes down Friday, February 12 at the Ricoh Stadium at 7 p.m. EST. The game will kick off NBA All-Star Weekend, which runs through February 14.
