Times-Herald (Vallejo) - - SPORTS -

CHICAGO >> Sacramento Kings guard Buddy Hield made a late surge to win the NBA 3-Point Con­test on Satur­day night.

Hield nailed a two-point money ball from the cor­ner to fin­ish with 27 points, edg­ing Phoenix Suns Al­lS­tar Devin Booker by one in the fi­nal round.

Hield is one of the few bright spots for strug­gling Sacramento, av­er­ag­ing 20.4 points while shoot­ing about 39 per­cent from 3-point range.

Wash­ing­ton’s Davis Ber­tans

opened the sec­ond and fi­nal round with a 22, be­fore Booker elim­i­nated him.

De­fend­ing cham­pion Joe Har­ris of the Brook­lyn Nets and Chicago’s Zach LaVine were elim­i­nated af­ter they failed to crack the top three in the first round.

Mi­ami’s Bam Ade­bayo has won the All-Star skills chal­lenge.

Ade­bayo nar­rowly de­feated In­di­ana’s Do­man­tas Sabo­nis in the fi­nal in a matchup of All-Star big men. He shared a hug with for­mer Heat star Dwyane Wade af­ter ac­cept­ing the tro­phy.
