Portland Trail Blazers star Damian Lillard captured the Three-Point Contest at All-Star Weekend in Salt Lake City, Utah, defeating Indiana Pacers duo Buddy Hield and Tyrese Haliburton in the final round.
Lillard is the first player in his franchise’s history to win the competition. He registered a final-round score of 26, narrowly edging Hield with his final shot attempt.
Lillard made both of his “Starry” balls, while Hield went 0-for-2. Each of those 30-foot shots were worth three points.
Congrats to Damian Lillard for winning the Three-Point Contest. Big-time shooting by a big-time shooter. Would love to see him shoot the Blazers to a big playoff upset.
