Watch: Suns' Booker finishes 3rd in Three Point Shootout to Splash Brothers

New, comments

The Splash Brothers once again led the Shootout, this time with Klay Thompson outshooting teammate Stephen Curry on the last shot of the Finals. Suns rookie Devin Booker finished 3rd.

He's the youngest player ever to compete in the Three-Point Shootout. In each round, he made no more than two shots in his first rack. But in the end he came up just short of the Splash Brothers.

Suns.com caught up with 19 year old Devin Booker after the contest to get his thoughts, including a promise to be back.

In the first round he made only two shots in the first two racks COMBINED.

Yet just as most players expected, including the Splash Brothers and J.J. Redick, Devin Booker closed strong and made it all the way to the Final Round of the contest.

Before the Finals though, he had to win a shoot-off against James Harden and J.J. Redick, who'd also garnered 20 points in the opening round.

Booker went last, and you can see on the faces of Harden and Redick at the end that Booker had out-shot them.

Steve Nash was on-hand, and glad when Booker advanced.

Watch Booker's Final Round here - all Booker - or watch all three of Klay, Steph and Booker in the Finals up at the top of the article.

Here's just Book.

The Splash Brothers themselves had some nice words for Booker last week in Phoenix. They also were cheering loudly when Booker won the shoot-out against Redick and Harden.

Interesting that Curry noted it took him four times to win that contest (last season), so expect Booker to be back in there a lot as well.

Final Word

The most hilarious moment of the night, for me, was Kevin Hart nearly beating Draymond Green in their own impromptu contest.
