In his first appearance in the contest, Eric Gordon showed he was the most solid contestant but he needed an extra effort to defeat Kyrie Irving at the tiebreaker round.
Gordon was the only player to score a perfect rack and he did it two times (final round & tiebreaker) and also had the best run with 7 made shots.
Klay Thompson was just one shot away of defending at the final round the Warriors players streak in the contest.

This contest was the third edition with the new rules. Every player can pick a rack to shoot five money-balls. That means that the new maximum score is 34 instead of 30.
No player has scored all the money-balls of the 'special rack' yet.

Watch the 3 Point Shootout Recap and Eric Gordon scoring 25 points
