The NBA’s Foot Locker Three-Point Contest took place in Toronto Saturday night, and it was quite the show. Read our recap below to see how it went down!

First round

Klay Thompson went first, and his stroke looked gorgeous. He finished with 22 points.

James Harden started off a bit slow on the first few shots, but got hot. He finished with 20 points.

J.J. Redick went 100% on his first rack. He cooled off after that, but still finished with 20 points.

Khris Middleton could never get it going. Off to the right the whole time. He finished with 13 points.

Devin Booker looked a bit nervous, but really caught fire after the middle rack. He finished with 20 points.

C.J. McCollum went 0-6-6-1-1 on the racks. Very hot-and-cold. He finished with 14 points.

Kyle Lowry could never really get it going, and finished with 15 points.

Stephen Curry missed his first three shots. Once he got warmed up, though. He was on fire. He hit 11 shots in a row. He took his time, and barely finished his last rack. He made this shot to get to advance:

First round winner: Klay Thompson

Tie-Breaker

In the tie-breaker round, Harden, Redick, and Booker have to break the tie for third place. They each get 30 seconds to shoot 3 racks.

James Harden missed his entire first rack, made his entire second rack, and didn’t get off the last shot on his last — and money ball — rack. He finished with 10

J.J. Redick made 4 of his first 5 on the money ball rack, but went cold after that. He finished with 9.

Devin Booker advances, hitting the last shot as time expires. He finished with 11 points.

Championship Round

Devin Booker hit just 1 on the first rack, but made 6 of 10 on the next 2 racks. Other than on his money ball rack(which he hit 3 of) Booker hit no money balls. He finished with 16.

Stephen Curry hit his first 7 shots. He was pretty consistent throughout, and finished with 23 points, the highest of the night up to that point.

Klay Thompson, not to be outdone, hit 8 shots in a row at one point in the round. He hit his entire last(moneyball) rack. He finished with an incredible 27 points.

Here’s video of Thompson’s performance:

Congratulations to Klay Thompson, winner of both rounds tonight!
