NBA All-Star weekend is still in full swing for these Brooklyn Nets. One night after two of their promising, young players took center stage in the Rising Stars game, and one night before their feature All-Star suits up for team Giannis, Joe Harris will let ‘em fly on Saturday night during the 3-Point Shooting Contest.
WHEN: Saturday, 8 p.m.
Joe Harris will take on defending champion Devin Booker and two other former 3-Point Contest champions, plus four 2019 All-Stars -- count Steph Curry in both categories -- as he makes his All-Star Weekend debut. Harris goes into the All-Star break as the NBA’s No. 2 3-point shooter (47.1 percent) and is fifth among all active NBA players in career 3-point shooting (42.1 percent). Since Jan. 1, 2018, Harris is shooting 46.9 from 3-point range over 98 games.
The 3-Point Contest is part of State Farm All-Star Saturday Night, which includes the Taco Bell Skills Challenge -- won last season by Brooklyn’s Spencer Dinwididdie -- and AT&T Slam Dunk. Television coverage begins at 8 p.m. and the 3-Point Contest will be the second event.
Let’s get those predictions below.
