NEWS ALARM
Derrick Jones Headshot

Jones made the final round of Saturday's Verizon Slam Dunk Contest, before falling to winner Glenn Robinson III.

The Suns rookie showed some impressive hops during the contest, including an opening-round dunk in which he soared over four people before putting home a one-handed slam. Jones has seen very little action for the Suns this season, not surprising for a skinny 20-year-old who only left UNLV early after he was deemed academically ineligible by the NCAA, but he has the length and athleticism to eventually develop into a useful player.

Glenn Robinson Headshot

Robinson defeated Derrick Jones, Eric Gordon and DeAndre Jordan in Saturday's Verizon Slam Dunk Contest.

With two-time defending champ Zach LaVine (knee) not participating, the field was wide open, and Robinson seized his opportunity with arguably the two most impressive dunks of the night, including a full two-handed pump reverse jam after leaping over three people to cap his final round victory over Jones. Robinson has been in and out of Indiana's starting lineup this season without much to show for it statistically, but Saturday's win could give him the confidence to lock down a starting role down the stretch.

Kemba Walker Headshot

Walker made it to the final round of Saturday's JBL Three-Point Contest, losing to eventual winner Eric Gordon.

He came up short, however, as his final-round 17 was topped by Gordon and Kyrie Irving's 20, before Gordon claimed the title in an overtime round. Walker's enjoying a career year for the Hornets, averaging 22.5 points and 2.7 three-pointers per game, but he'll need to get a little more help after the All-Star break from his teammates if Charlotte is going to pull themselves up into a playoff spot.

Kyrie Irving Headshot

Irving lost in the final round to Eric Gordon in Saturday's JBL Three-Point Contest.

He went down swinging, forcing Gordon to an overtime round when they each scored 20 in the finals, but Irving's 18 in overtime proved to be not quite enough. The 24-year-old is on pace for a career year with the Eastern Conference-leading Cavs, averaging 24.4 points and 2.4 threes per game, and his usage could even increase after the All-Star break due to Kevin Love's knee injury.

Eric Gordon Headshot

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.
