The contest saved the best for last. With the new rules (4 additional money balls) players can score 34 points instead of 30, but the results on the first round were very weak.

Marco Belinelli's 19 points on the final seemed enough, but Bradley Beal scored a perfect last rack (first on the night) to tie Belinelli effort.
On the tiebreaker Belinelli made the best round of the night to win the contest.

[Preview]

Cavaliers point guard Kyrie Irving is back again to defend last year's 3 Point Shootout Contest title.

The competition in New Orleans will be really hard: 4 NBA All-Star players and 3 of the best NBA shooters (Kyle Korver declined the NBA invitation).

Nobody since Jason Kapono (2007-2008) has won the contest in two consecutive editions.

There are four players from East conference and another four from West conference. The competitors with the highest score from each conference after the first round will compete head-to-head on the final.

There's a new rule for the contest. Every rack has the usual 4 orange balls worth 1 point plus one three-color (money ball) worth 2 points. The change is that each player will be able to pick a 'money ball rack', wherever he feels more comfortable, to shot 5 money ball from there.
