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:
Dennis Smith Jr. on if he could take a piece of another player’s game at All-Star Weekend: “I would take Steph Curry's shooting. He's the only person here who's the best of all time at something.”— Diamond Leung (@diamond83) February 16, 2019
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.
