Day two of the NBA All-Star weekend went down last night (Feb 14) at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y. NBA All-Star Saturday featured the Skills Challenge, the Three-Point contest and the Slam Dunk Contest. The arena was packed with stars such as Nicki Minaj, Meek Mill, Ludacris, Rihanna and a whole lot more.

Houston Rockets Patrick Beverley wins this year NBA Skills Challenge, coming from behind to beat Milwaukee Bucks Brandon Knight in the final round. Beverley beat Phoenix Suns Isaiah Thomas and Atlanta Hawks Jeff Teague—who we interview before—before stealing the victory away from Knight. Every year it's the same thing, it always comes down to the shot.


The Three-Point Contest and Slam Dunk competition was probably the best it's been in years. Golden State Warrior Stephen Curry took the title with 13 straight makes, beating out finalists Cleveland Cavalier Kyrie Irving and teammate Klay Thompson. Curry was on fire in the final round with a final score of 27—the best of any participant in either round. The highly anticipated 2015 Three-Point Contest was everything you would hope for and more. The five other contestants that were eliminated in the initial round: Portland Trailblazer Wesley Matthews (22), Atlanta Hawks Kyle Korver (18), San Antonio Spurs Marco Belinelli (18), L.A. Clippers J.J. Redick (17) and Houston Rockets James Harden (15). Watch Curry's monster final round below

Minnesota Timberwolves Zach LaVine put on a show last night. It was quite possibly the single best performance at the Slam Dunk Contest since Vince Carter's classic run 15 years ago when he yelled into the camera "It's Over." "I just wanted to put a jolt through the crowd and get everybody off their feet," LaVine said.

His first two dunks were fantastic, scoring perfect scores. By the time the first round was over, everyone knew that there was no one beating this guy.

The crowd stood to watch LaVine dunk and rightfully so. He made it look so effortlessly, floating in the air like he was flying. There was another dunk from a participant that was really good. Orlando Magic Victor Oladipo came out last night before his first dunk and sang Sinatra's "New York, New York," which sparked a reaction from Rihanna, before throwing down a sick dunk.

SB Nation wrote about the five things they learned from NBA All Star Saturday, but we what we discovered about LaVine during the post game interview is pretty interesting. He's a huge Cheif Keef fan.
