Highlights: NBA Dunk Contest, Skills Challenge, & 3-Point Contest

Check out the NBA Duck skills challenge & 3 point

Glenn Robinson III outduels Derrick Jones Jr. and more from Saturday night at All-Star Weekend.

The NBA hosted its 2017 All-Star dunk contest Saturday night at the Smoothie King Center in New Orleans. Aaron Gordon’s drone stunt failed to inspire, and Glenn Robinson III ultimately prevailed over Derrick Jones Jr. Jones arguably had the superior dunks but doomed himself with three failed attempts on the first attempt of the final round.

Ultimately, this year’s dunk contest paled in comparison to last year’s historic duel between Gordon and Zach LaVine. Most everyone agreed that the highlights from last night were Kristaps Porzingis’ victory in the skills competition and the $500K raised for Craig Sager’s SagerStrong Foundation.
