Rockets' Eric Gordon: Wins Three-Point Contest

Gordon won Saturday's JBL Three-Point Contest, needing an overtime round to defeat Kyrie Irving.

He and Irving each scored 20 in the final round, topping Kemba Walker's 17, to force the extra set of shots. Gordon finished with a flurry, draining 11 of his final 12 three-pointers, to claim the title. The Rockets' sharpshooter, who's averaging a career-high 3.5 threes per game this season, follows in the footsteps of long range specialists such as Jason Kapono, Jeff Hornacek and Steve Kerr in winning his first Three-Point Contest.
