MTN DEW 3-Point Contest

Devin Booker, the 2018 3-point champ is back for more. Booker is a pure shooter and has proven in the past that he can win this thing. With that said, this years field is stacked, it will be a tough one.

The biggest question about the 3-point contest is can Joe Harris go back-to-back? For me, the answer is no. I think it’s pretty difficult to do. The lights are already pretty bright during this competition and they only get brighter when you’re the defending champ.

Trae Young has a real shot to win this and could probably do it with 10 seconds remaining. Trae has one of the quickest releases in the league and by far the quickest release of anyone in this competition. My only concern would be if he slowed down his release, which guys tend to do. Just shoot your shot Trae!

Zach LaVine has been one of the best volume three-point shooters in the NBA this season. He’s shooting 38.5 percent from 3 on nearly 8 attempts per game with a large majority of those being off the dribble. If LaVine gets rolling I think he can easily win this thing.

Prediction: Zach LaVine (and then he hangs around for the dunk contest too… fingers crossed)
