The NBA All-Star Three-Point Shootout captured the attention of many Saturday night, and for good reason as it was a star-studded event. Stephen Curry won last year, and was the favorite for many this year. However, it was his fellow ‘Splash Brother’ in crime, Klay Thompson, who stole the show with a late hot streak to win the competition.

Here is the breakdown and be sure to watch the highlights below.

First round


Final round

  • Devin Booker : 16 points
  • Steph Curry : 23 points
  • Klay Thompson : 27 points!

It was an exciting three point contest, with many future stars (Booker and Middleton) likely to be back as competitors. It was the first time a pair of teammates won it back-to-back. Congratulations to Klay Thompson on winning his first NBA three-point contest.
