2019 All Star Saturday Night Preview
Five of the eight competitors in the skills challenge, the first event of the night, played in Friday night’s Rising Stars Challenge. That includes Sacramento Kings point guard De’Aaron Fox, considered the favorite by most if not all betting sites due in part to his blistering speed.
“He’s built for [the skills challenge],” Fox’s teammate Buddy Hield said, according to The Sacramento Bee. “With his quickness and his passing ability, all he has to do is make the shot and he’ll be fine.”
A second-year pro, Fox is ninth in the NBA in assists per game, at 7.2.
Hield, who’s fourth in the NBA in 3-point percentage (44.9) and 3-pointers made (195), will shoot in the night’s second event.
He’ll get stiff competition from the first family of long-range shooting. Two-time MVP Stephen Curry of the Golden State Warriors and his brother, Portland Trail Blazers guard Seth Curry, will vie for the 3-point contest crown in the arena that hosts their father Dell Curry’s former team. The Curry patriarch is the Hornets’ all-time leader in games played. He’s second only to Kemba Walker in points and 3-pointers.
“It’s going to be incredible,” Dell Curry said, according to the Associated Press. “It’s going to be a mini family reunion.”
Seth and Stephen are first and second, respectively, in career 3-point percentage among active players at 44.02 percent and 43.71 percent. On the season, Seth is third in the NBA at 46.5 percent. His brother’s 44.4 percent is sixth.
“I’m trying to win it, so I’m going to target everybody,” the Trail Blazers guard said, per AP. “It should be very entertaining to watch us both shoot out there. But I gotta beat everybody, not just him, to win it.”
Walker will also participate in the shootout.
His teammate, rookie forward Miles Bridges, will take flight in the dunk contest.
“I’ve got some dunks up my sleeve,” the Michigan State alum said in January, according to The Charlotte Observer. “You’ll just have to wait and see.”
