NBA All-Star Weekend 3-Point Contest Info

Contest Format: Each player will have 70 seconds to shoot a total of 27 balls (five racks of five balls). Four of the racks have four balls worth one point and the fifth ball is worth two points (the money ball). The fifth and final rack will be comprised of entirely money balls. This year there is a new wrinkle. There will be two additional green balls placed six feet behind the 3-point line, which will be worth three points. This makes the new possible high score 40 points.

Round 1: All nine shooters take their turn, the three highest scores will advance to the Championship Round.

Championship Round: The order will go from the lowest Round 1 score to highest. Whichever of those three remaining players records the highest score in this round will be declared the winner.
