NBA All Star Weekend: All Star Saturday

NBA All Star Weekend: All Star Saturday

SSaturday Night is one of the most anticipated night of All Star Weekend because it includes so many different kinds of challenges with all kinds of stars! The events took place at Barclays center in Brooklyn. It started off with everyone in the building having a necklace around their chair that not only would light up – it also was remote controlled to sync with the music and any other activities going on! (Similar to what we saw at the Jordan Hangar last month!)

The night started with the Degree Shooting Stars which was won by Team Bosh. Next was a new twist on the Taco Bell Skills Challenge (which I thought was much more exciting to watch!) which was won by Patrick Beverly. The 3-point contest was super exciting and star studded! The top 3 players to move on to the final round were Kyrie Irving, Klay Thompson and Stephen Curry. The battle of the Splash Brothers as well as defending 3point champion Kyrie – it was really up in the air of who would take home the trophy. Stephen Curry had an exciting run and hit 13 shots in a row!! He ended up winning the contest with 27 points in the final round. To finish the night off was the dunk contest. Zack LaVine came out with some really exciting dunks (including his “Space Jam” dunk) to take home the trophy. Check out the highlights of the night on nba.com if you missed it!
