Nets' Joe Harris shocks Warriors' Stephen Curry for 3-point title

Joe Harris edged out Steph Curry to win the 2019 3 Point Contest on Saturday night. More

"I personally was one of those guys, and I got lucky going into a situation, going to a Nets organization that had such a strong value and emphasis on culture, skill development, and I'm sort of a byproduct of that system". Granted, this was during warmups, before the actual game tipped off, but still.

"He just dabbed me and said he had my back, " Harris said. So this was just another disheartening reminder that National Basketball Association stars are not, in fact, just like us, because even the guys perceived as "not as athletic" possess physical gifts that are barely in the realm of our comprehension.

Harris scored 26 points in the final round to follow up his 25 points in the first round.

"I would have loved the storybook ending - Steph comes home and wins in his native Charlotte", Stephen Curry said.


There were 10 players in the event, and seven went out in the first round. "And it's certainly something that I'll remember for a long time". "Figured I'd let him get a shot attempt so I could get closer to the three-point line".

Boston Celtics' Jayson Tatum, meanwhile, won the Skills Challenge over Atlanta Hawks Trae Young by banking in a running three-pointer from mid-court.

"Honestly, I didn't think about it when I was out there", Stephen said of the bet. The slam dunk contest field of four - New York's Dennis Smith Jr., Oklahoma City's Hamidou Diallo, Charlotte's Miles Bridges and Atlanta's John Collins - was pared to Diallo and Smith for the final.

That left Diallo as the night's final participant. "Just came out and gave the crowd what it was looking for".
