Bleacher Report

Expert Winner
Kristopher Knox Kyrie Irving

Bleacher Report’s Kristopher Knox has made his choice and it is Kyrie Irving who he thinks will win the JBL Three-Point Contest this weekend. Irving has been shooting the lights out this campaign, knocking down nearly 39 percent of his three-points attempts this season. The last time he shot at such a high clip was the 2012-13 campaign. Coincidentally, Irving also won the Three-Point Contest that season. He is pegged at +550 to capture his second 3-Point crown this Saturday.


Expert Winner
Michael Hoad Klay Thompson

Michael Hoad of Sportsnet, on the other hand, is backing Klay Thompson to take home the title this week. He believes that Thompson’s experience in this tournament will be the main difference this weekend. He captured last year’s Three-Point Contest in spectacular fashion, connecting on his last six money balls in the championship round to edge past Golden State teammate and 2015 winner Stephen Curry. Hoad also alludes to the fact that Thompson’s skill set (catch-and-shoot) is tailor-made for this particular event. Thompson’s odds of repeating this weekend are priced at +110.


Expert Winner
Mike Tierney Kyle Lowry

Sportsline’s Mike Tierney is picking Kyle Lowry to win the 3-point crown this weekend. Priced at +750, Tierney believes Lowry provides the best bang for your buck when it comes to this All-Star competition. Lowry has the highest three-point accuracy (42.6 percent) among the eight gunners competing this weekend. The Toronto guard is one sleeper you should definitely watch out for this coming Saturday.
