Suns' Devin Booker walks off with 3-point title

As a result, Smith didn't make it to the final round and he took to Twitter after the event to express his displeasure.

Mitchell is making a strong case for the award this season, having won Western Conference Rookie of the Month honors in December and January. It's a single-elimination format with an eight-player field.

But the Cavaliers big man would only land one 10 from the judges, accompanied by for four 9s, including one from judge Dr. J. Propelling a ball from that distance is not as much about strength as it is physics: "Everything has to hit at one time".

The NBA All-Star Game featuring Team LeBron and Team Steph is scheduled Sunday night at Staples Center.

Lou Williams of the Los Angeles Clippers is the +350 favorite on the Skills Challenge odds and might be the sentimental choice playing in his home arena. Denver Nuggets guard Jamal Murray, a native of Kitchener, is +400. The final ball of each one was a "money ball" worth two points, and one of the racks, usually the last one, was all money balls. Though free-throw line dunks are more common now with more athletic players, you can't deny the artistry that comes with being the first. This year, the top 3-point headliners include Klay Thompson and Paul George. Both those guys won, with Thompson returning and the +210 favourite.

This is a pure popularity contest, and the rules frankly don't matter.

The NBA's All-Star Weekend is almost here and this year's three-day event promises to be a non-stop party with concerts, comedy, and competitions galore.

Mitchell held on to beat Cleveland's Larry Nance the final round to win the 2018 Verizon Slam Dunk title with LaVine and Gordon in attendance.

The NBA dunk contest was a throwback in many ways, with a 21-year-old rookie and a 25-year-old, third-year pro fighting it out for the trophy.

Dominique Wilkins (1990) - A nine-time NBA All-Star, Wilkins was one of the biggest stars of the 1980s and early '90s, especially known for his dunking abilities.

The other participants were Indiana's Victor Oladipo and Dallas' Dennis Smith Jr.

Mitchell edged Larry Nance two points, sealing his victory with a close approximation of the 360-degree spin dunk that Vince Carter used to win the 2000 contest. And he deserved better than a 39 since Aaron Gordon was given a 47 for pulling off the exact same dunk in the competition two years ago. Larry Nance Jr. has already thrown down a few jams as a Cavaliers [VIDEO] after destroying rims all season in Los Angeles.
