Buddy Hield wins NBA All-Star 3-Point Contest
Former Sooner and now Sacramento Kings guard Buddy Hield won the 3-Point Contest by beating Phoenix Suns guard Devin Booker and Washington Wizards forward Davis Bertans in the final round at the Taco Bell Skills Challenge that began Saturday. Hield hit his final money-ball shot to reach the winning score of 27, which was just enough to beat Booker's final round score of 26.
The rest of the 3-Point Contest field included Devonte' Graham (Charlotte Hornets), Joe Harris (Brooklyn Nets), (Sacramento Kings), Zach LaVine (Chicago Bulls), Duncan Robinson (Miami Heat) and Trae Young (Atlanta Hawks). Harris had won the threepoint shootout at last year's All-Star weekend, while Booker was the 3-Point Contest champion in 2018.
