Klay Thompson outshined his Golden State Warriors teammates during NBA All-Star Saturday night festivities as he upset Stephen Curry to win the three point contest title.
Thompson was hot from start to finish as he beat out Curry, teammate and defending champion, to in championship round.
Thompson set the pace to begin the night with 22 points in the first round while Curry had to fight just to get into the second round by hitting the last money ball on the final rack to move on to the second round. But Thompson was even more impressive in the championship round, notching 27 points to edge Curry's 24 points.
But it's Warriors' fans who are once again the big winners here: Thompson and Curry are now the first teammates to win consecutive three point contests in NBA history, which is yet another sign of just how amazing it is to watch this team every night.

Earlier in in the evening, Draymond Green competed in the skills competition and lost in the first round to Karl-Anthony Towns. But given that Towns eventually beat Isaiah Thomas in the finals to win the competition for the bigs, I guess we can say that there's no shame in losing to the eventual champ.

Now, about tying Kevin Hart in a ridiculous shootout...you can understand how silly that was in any language.
He eclipsed Nickleback as the most over exposed entertainer of my lifetime. https://t.co/U9Qfow7bq3— Kristofer Habbas (@Kris_Habbas) February 14, 2016
