While the NBA all-star weekend may be a resting time for some NBA players, for others the work never stops. There are eight players competing in this year’s Three-Point Contest, among them there are four All-Stars of 2018. We are hoping to see a crazy show this year from the leagues greatest shooters.

We will have a chance to enjoy the 32nd JBL Three-Point Contest, which is a part of the All-Star event, along with Verizon Slam Dunk Contest and Taco Bell Skills Challenge, on Saturday night (Feb. 17), aired on TNT and ESPN Radio at 8 PM ET.

Three-Point Contest participants this year

Among the eight sharpshooters are four of this year’s All-Stars: Klay Thompson of the Golden State, Toronto Raptors’ Kyle Lowry, Washington Wizards’ Bradley Beal, and Paul George of the Oklahoma City Thunder. The other participants are Miami Heat’s Wayne Ellington, Devin Booker of the Phoenix Suns, LA Clippers’ Tobias Harris and the defending champion Houston Rockets’ Eric Gordon.

Paul George is making his second appearance in this event. For now, only Klay Thompson and James Harden have made more threes than George this season as he is third in the league with 176 made three-pointers.

Eric Gordon is defending the title this year, and while there is a small chance for him to win this contest again, it is not an impossible task.

He is currently eight in the league for made three-pointers.

Klay Thompson is shooting 45 percent from the deep this season, and he is known as one of the league’s best shooters. He already won this contest once in 2016 and this is going to be his fourth consecutive year at this event.

Kyle Lowry is one of those players who are not really consistent from the three-point line.

He is set for his third consecutive appearance in the contest and is currently seventh in the league for the most three-pointers made.

For Wayne Ellington, this is going to be a new experience as he has never appeared on this event before. However, with 38.9 percent shooting from the deep this year, he is not to be underestimated.

Devin Booker, like Paul George, is making his second appearance in the Three-Point Contest. Booker is one of those shooters who can get hot when shooting, as he has already shown in his regular season games.

Tobias Harris, making his debut at the contest, is not really considered a deep threat. In his new team, the Los Angeles Clippers, Harris is shooting only 29 percent from the three-point line. But, with Pistons he had a 40.9 percent average.

Bradley Beal is a first-time All-Star this year, and this is his second appearance in the Three-Point Contest. He finished seventh in the most threes made last season.

Who could be the possible winner of the contest?

The best shooter in this tournament, Klay Thompson, is expected to win this year.

Because he has already won it before, and by far has the most experience. Thompson is also known for his catch-and-shoot ability, which many other players are struggling with.

As mentioned before, we must not underestimate Wayne Ellington, as he is fifth in the league for the most made three-pointers and as many fans know, he can really get on fire when he hits a couple of shots. With all of that said, all that is left for us is to wait and see it for ourselves.
