A Rookie Won This Year’s Slam Dunk Comp By Jumping Clean Over Shaq

"You miss a couple, you start to think a little bit", Curry said after the event, via the Sporting News.

It wasn't Stephen Curry's night, but he came close to winning another 3-point contest trophy. He's come in and won this thing [in 2015] and lost. Curry needed to hit all five of his money ball shots (worth two points each) in the final rack, but missed one of them, leaving Harris the victor. "Because I was able to get kind of warm beforehand, and you don't really have a ton of anxiety because you can't have time to think about it".

Despite Harris' strong effort at the beginning, it was Curry who electrified the crowd in the first round, scoring a high of 27 points, including knocking down all five shots in his own moneyball rack in the right corner.

Curry's brother Seth also saw action in the contest along with his Portland teammate Damian Lillard, Phoenix's Devin Booker, Toronto's Danny Green, Milwaukee's Khris Middleton, Dallas' Dirk Nowitzki and Charlotte's Kemba Walker.

Quoting a line from the iconic Queen song " Bohemian Rhapsody ", the Academy said: "Is this the real life?" "We will rock The Oscars Feb 24th".

Hield put up 19 points in the finals to settle for 3rd.

Both players were hoping to do better than their father Dell Curry, who participated in the 3-point contest twice but never made it out of the first round.

"I honestly didn't know I was going to hit the shot, but I had to give myself a chance, throw it up there, and it worked out for the best".

"I think I was lucky to be the first guy to shoot", Harris said. "He's already won one, he's got all the awards". "I was thinking that in my head".
