  • Steph Curry said he regrets putting his daughter Riley in the spotlight

It wasn't Stephen Curry's night, but he came close to winning another 3-point contest trophy.

Take a look at the sneakers worn by Harris and the rest of the 3-Point Contest field below.

Stephen, who won the three-point competition in 2015, says he is motivated to win it again because he "knows for a fact" that everybody else in the Curry family - including his parents - are pulling for Seth.

The All-Star Game is in Charlotte this year, which is Curry's hometown due to his father Dell playing 10 seasons with the Hornets. Seth, making his first appearance, says Dell advised them to "do a whole lot better than I did".


The 2014 UVa grad was the first player to shoot in the final round, and posted 26 points, which was good enough to beat runner-up Steph Curry (24).

Brooklyn Nets hotshot Joe Harris gets one over Golden State Warriors star Steph Curry. Young tried a pull-up three pointer with his final shot but missed.

Curry's brother Seth also saw action in the contest along with his Portland teammate Damian Lillard, Phoenix's Devin Booker, Toronto's Danny Green, Milwaukee's Khris Middleton, Dallas' Dirk Nowitzki and Charlotte's Kemba Walker.

This is the second time Curry has lost the coveted 3-point contest.
