There were two Portland Trail Blazers representing Rip City in Charlotte Saturday night, as Damian Lillard and Seth Curry competed in the 3-point competition. Charlotte native, Seth Curry, went first and finished with a solid round of 16. Lillard, who said this week all he wanted to do was “beat Seth”, finished with 17, hitting a money ball with 0.1 seconds left on the clock. It was a good showing from the two Trail Blazers but both players were eliminated in the first round. Rip City still loves them though.
Brooklyn Nets guard Joe Harris, Golden State Warrior guard Seth Curry, and Sacramento King guard Buddy Hield, advanced to the finals with scores of 25 ,26, and 27.
In the final round, Nets guard Joe Harris won with a final score of 26. Steph Curry made it interesting finishing with 24, missing a money ball in his final rack to force sudden death.
