Brooklyn Nets sharpshooter Joe Harris defeats Charlotte hometown hero and Golden State Warriors superstar Steph Curry in the 2019 National Basketball Association 3-point contest at All-Star Weekend. 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. Harris was in the 3-point contest for a reason, and he was able to win because he is one of the NBA's elite shooters this season. Harris advanced past the first round with a score of 25.
All expected Curry to rule the shootout he last won in 2015 after firing 27 points in the first round, draining all of his last 10 shots including all 5 in his moneyball rack.
Kings shooting guard Buddy Hield advanced to the final round with a score of 26 but finished it with only a score of 19.
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.
The Warriors' star made his first nine shots of the final round, then missed three of five shots from the top of the key.
"I'm definitely leaning one way", Dell Curry said.
Though Curry came up short in the 3-point contest and lost to Joe Harris, that jacket made him a victor.
