The 65th NBA All-Star Game was the highest scoring game in league history, Klay Thompson matched the best single round score in Three-Point Contest history and there’s a legitimate debate on if the Zach LaVine and Aaron Gordon slam-for-slam showdown marked the best dunk contest in league history. Here are our top Warriors moments from All-Star Weekend in Toronto, in no particular order.
Klay Thompson Wins the Three-Point Contest
In. The. Zone. That was Klay Thompson on All-Star Saturday, who made his last eight shots to take the Three-Point Contest crown away from Stephen Curry.
Steph Gets in to the Three-Point Contest Finals
He was the last competitor to take his turn and he needed to beat a first round score of 20 to guarantee a spot in the Three-Point Contest finals. And because Stephen Curry has a flare for the dramatic, he needed to make his last two money balls on the last rack to join his fellow Splash Brother in the finals. Well, Splash and Splash!
It was the last minute of the highest scoring All-Star Game in league history. And there was Draymond Green, playing defense as if it was a regular season game. He defended Paul George as the Pacers forward missed a shot, keeping him one point shy of the individual All-Star Game scoring record.
Warriors Love for Kobe
All-Star Weekend featured several tributes to Kobe Bryant, who was playing in his 18th and final NBA All-Star Game. For Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green, it truly was a special moment to share the court with the Lakers legend in his farewell All-Star Game.
