On Saturday night, one of the main attractions of NBA All-Star Weekend is set to go down: the Three-Point Contest. While there's plenty of substance-lacking spectacle during All-Star Weekend, the Three-Point Contest has remained one of the more impressive showings of the festivities.
Some of the top long-distance shooters in the league will compete to see who gets the title this year, including Kyrie Irving of the Cleveland Cavaliers. Last year's winner, Kevin Love of the Minnesota Timberwolves, is unable to defend his crown due to his hand injury. Still, there's some solid players competing.
The Eastern Conference will be represented by Irving, Paul George of the Indiana Pacers and Steve Novak of the New York Knicks. The Western Conference will be represented by Ryan Anderson of the New Orleans Hornets, Matt Bonner of the San Antonio Spurs and Stephen Curry of the Golden State Warriors.
Five shooting stations will be set up around the three-point line, and players will shoot from the different position, earning points over the course of one minute. The two highest scorers will face off in the finals.
The coverage of All-Star Saturday begins at 8:30 p.m. ET, and the Three-Point Contest is the third event on the schedule, after the Shooting Stars and Skills Challenge events. It will all go down at the Toyota Center in Houston and it will be on TNT.
