What: All-Star Saturday Night

When: February 16th, 2019 @ 5pm PST / 8pm EST


The NBA All-Star weekend party is in full swing in Charlotte, North Carolina!

Tonight, all eyes will be on the Spectrum Center for the Skills Challenge, 3-Point Shootout, and the Slam Dunk Contest.

Of particular interest to Dub Nation this evening will be that shooting exhibition, as Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry will be unleashing his powers in front of the world. He returns to his hometown of Charlotte to do battle against a stacked field including his younger brother, Portland Trailblazer’s guard Seth Curry. The rest of the snipers are comprised of:

Devin Booker, Suns

Danny Green, Raptors

Joe Harris, Nets

Buddy Hield, King

Damian Lillard, Trail Blazers

Khris Middleton, Bucks

Dirk Nowitzki, Mavericks

Kemba Walker, Hornets

This is going to be an intense battle of long-distance bombing, and here’s the odds on the contest per Forbes:

Here’s hoping for the Bay’s Area Curry to get the W, but in any case it should be exhilarating display of marksmanship. To whet your appetite, here’s the last time Steph won it back in 2015.
