2020 NBA All-Star Saturday Night: Results, winners from Slam Dunk Contest, 3-Point Contest, Skills Competition

There was plenty of fun, excitement and highlights throughout Saturday night's three marquee events

NBA All-Star Saturday is officially in the books. While the bulk of the attention is always focused on the All-Star Game itself, the Saturday night festivities are usually just as fun, and tonight certainly didn't disappoint. 

As always, All-Star Saturday Night opened with the Skill Challenge -- a three-round, bracket-style contest where players will compete head-to-head in an obstacle course featuring checkpoints that test their dribbling, passing and shooting. The bracket pits guards against big men, and surprisingly, the big men won all four first-round matchups. The finals were a battle between two big men in Bam Adebayo and Domantas Sabonis, with Adebayo coming out on top

The 3-Point Contest came up next. Last year's champion Joe Harris returned to defend his crown against seven others in a slightly altered event. Harris didn't repeat as champion. Instead, Davis Bertans, Devin Booker and Buddy Hield reached the final round, which included one of the most exciting finishes in the contest's history. Booker put a strong score of 26 up on the board in his final run through the course, but Hield matched him shot for shot. With the contest on the line, Hield made four of his five attempts from the money rack, including his final shot which pushed his score up to 27 to beat Booker. 

The Slam Dunk Contest, All-Star Weekend's premier event, closed the night with an absolute classic of a performance. Aaron Gordon and Derrick Jones Jr. tied after both the finals and the tiebreaker round, sending the event into virtual double overtime. Finally, despite Gordon dunking over 7-5 Tacko Fall, Jones was declared the event's winner. 

Recap all the action from All-Star Saturday Night below.

A tie was never on the table, apparently. A winner was always going to be declared. https://twitter.com/bytimreyno...

It seems pretty obvious at this point that the man behind Aaron Gordon's loss was Dwyane Wade. https://twitter.com/ramonashel...

This speaks for itself. Aaron Gordon is easily the greatest dunker never to win the Dunk Contest. https://twitter.com/espnstatsi...

Gordon can win it with a 49 or 50

Fultz threw it off the side of the backboard. Gordon caught it and spun for a 360 with one hand. Unreal

February 16, 2020, 3:22 AM


February 16, 2020, 3:21 AM

He had someone throw the ball off the backboard, then jumped over him and put it between the legs and slammed it! Perfect 50!
