Tonight will arguably be the most anticipated night during the NBA All-star weekend. Tonight’s events include: The Taco Bell Skills Challenge, the JBL Three-Point Contest, and the Verizon Slam Dunk contest. Below are our predictions of tonight’s winners:
Taco Bell Skills Challenge Winner: Lauri Markkanen
Markkanen has the skills to win this event, as this event has two important aspects: efficiency and time. Being a rookie, we believe he will perform with something to prove.
JBL Three-Point Contest Winner: Wayne Ellington
In this star-studded contest, Ellington is not the first person that comes to mind with the likes of Klay Thompson, Eric Gordon, and Bradley Beal in the mix. However, Ellington is having a career year in points in which most of them come from 3’s. He has lit it up in multiple games this year, proving he is more than capable of winning this contest.
Verizon Slam Dunk contest Winner: Larry Nance Jr.
With Dennis Smith , Donavan Mitchell, and Victor Oladipo in the mix, this should make to be an interesting dunk contest. With that being said, we believe that Larry Nance has the highest bounce of the bunch which might give him the best chance to pull of some amazing dunks.
Here are our predictions, let us know what you think.
