Nets guard Joe Harris was not able to successfully defend his crown in the 2020 NBA Three-Point Contest.
Shortly after Spencer Dinwiddie was defeated in the first round of the Skills Challenge as part of Saturday night's All-Star Weekend festivities, Harris did not advance past the first round of the Three-Point Contest.
The rules for this year's contest were slightly different than in previous years, as the NBA introduced two new "Mountain Dew zones" to the floor, set up six feet behind the arc on the wings. Players could also pick one of their racks to be made entirely of "money balls" with each shot being worth two points.
As the last shooter of the first round, Harris, the defending champion, needed to score at least 26 points to finish in the top three of the eight contestants to stave off elimination.
He came up short, though, finishing with 22 points, as Washington's Davis Bertans, Phoenix's Devin Booker, and Sacramento's Buddy Hield advanced to the final.
Eventually, Hield was crowned the champion, needing to knock down his very last shot to defeat Booker by one point, finishing the final round with 27 points.
