Joe Harris to compete in NBA Three-Point Contest
The last time that a UVA basketball player engaged in among NBA All-Star Saturday’s competition (Slam Dunk Contest, 3-point Shootout or Skills Challenge) was once Ralph Sampson engaged in the 1984 Slam Dunk Contest. This year which will alter as Joe Harris will get involved in the NBA 3-point Contest. Based on Brian Lewis of the New York Post, he’s learned from a league source that Harris is going to be a player in the competition. “Joe Harris is going to be called to the 3-point Competition at All-Star Weekend, according to a league source. The contestants will not be formally announced until Tuesday,” wrote Lewis. “Coming into Saturday’s 102-89 reduction at Orlando, the Nets sharpshooter was third in the NBA at 3-point shooting 46.2 percent, supporting just Seth Curry and Davis Bertans. The sole real player in Nets history to be over 45.0 percent moving in the All-Star fracture (min. 100 tries ) was the late Drazen Petrovic in 47.2 in 1992-93.”
