Here is a closer look at the MTN DEW 3-Point Contest participants:

Devin Booker, Suns
(3rd appearance)
In addition to winning last year’s 3-Point Contest with a record 28-point final round, Booker reached the final round of the 2016 event as a rookie.  On Jan. 24, the 22-year-old guard became the fifth-youngest player in NBA history to score 5,000 career points.

Seth Curry, Trail Blazers
(1st appearance)
In his first season with Portland, the younger Curry brother is shooting an NBA-high 48.5 percent from three-point range.  Seth, who attended Charlotte Christian School and finished his college career at Duke, was an NBA G League All-Star in the 2013-14 and 2014-15 seasons.

Stephen Curry, Warriors
(6th appearance)
An NBA All-Star Game starter for the sixth consecutive year, the two-time Kia NBA Most Valuable Player ranks third on the all-time list for three-pointers made (2,344).  With 215 three-pointers this season, he has become the first player in NBA history to make at least 200 threes in seven straight seasons.  Stephen starred at Charlotte Christian School and Davidson College near Charlotte.

Danny Green, Raptors
(1st appearance)
Green, who is shooting 42.0 percent from three-point range this season, shares the record for most three-pointers made without a miss in an NBA Finals game (five).  He played four years at the University of North Carolina and won a national championship in the 2008-09 season.

Joe Harris, Nets

A full-time NBA starter for the first time in his five seasons, Harris ranks fourth in the league in three-point field goal percentage (45.3) while averaging a career-high 13.3 points.

Khris Middleton, Bucks
(2nd appearance)
The first-time NBA All-Star is averaging a career-high 2.3 three-pointers made per game.  He is the first player to play in the NBA G League before becoming an NBA All-Star.

Dirk Nowitzki, Mavericks
(6th appearance)
This marks the first 3-Point Contest appearance in 11 years for Nowitzki, who made his event debut in 2000 and was crowned champion in 2006.  He ranks 11th on the NBA’s all-time three-pointers made list (1,935).  Playing his record-tying 21st NBA season, Nowitzki was selected by NBA Commissioner Adam Silver to play in the 2019 All-Star Game as a special roster addition.

Kemba Walker, Hornets

Walker has made the fifth-most three-pointers in the NBA this season (165).  The Hornets’ franchise leader in points and three-pointers made has been selected to his third All-Star Game in a row and named a starter for the first time.

2019 MTN DEW 3-Point Contest Rules

The MTN DEW 3-Point Contest is a two-round, timed competition.  Five shooting locations are positioned around the three-point arc.  Four racks contain four NBA regulation balls (each worth one point) and one multicolored “money” ball (worth two points).  The fifth rack is a special “all money ball” rack, which each participant can place at any of the five locations.  Every ball on this rack is worth two points.

The players have one minute to shoot as many of the 25 balls as they can.  The three competitors with the highest scores in the first round advance to the championship round.  The player with the highest score in the championship round is the winner.  Click here for a complete explanation of the rules.
