Celtics Allen, Pierce Will Face Off In 3-Point Shootout

Ray Allen In recent years, most NBA All-Stars have been reluctant to participate in any of the extracurricular events of the NBA All-Star weekend.

Many stars only want to party and play in the All-Star game while ignoring the other events such as: the dunk, skills and 3-Point shooting contests.

Thanks to Boston Celtics’ veterans Ray Allen and Paul Pierce, this year will be a little different.

Both of the All-Stars will be competing in the 3-Point shootout during All-Star weekend.

Pierce is the defending 3-point champ, but Allen, during his next game, will become the NBA’s all-time leader in 3-point shots made. He currently trails Reggie Miller by one shot.

The NBA’s All-Star weekend will take place in Los Angeles on Feb. 18-20.
