Team Bosh wins Shooting Stars for 3rd straight year

Brooklyn, NY ( - Team Bosh defended their Shooting Stars title for a third straight year to open the festivities on All-Star Saturday night.

The trio of Miami Heat forward Chris Bosh, NBA legend Dominique Wilkins and Swin Cash of the WNBA's New York Liberty defeated Team Westbrook in the championship round with a time of 57.6 seconds.

Russell Westbrook of the Oklahoma City Thunder, NBA legend Anfernee "Penny" Hardaway and Tamika Catchings of the Indiana Fever were unable to complete their round in the allotted 1:30. They missed all 26 of their halfcourt shots.

The stars competition is made up of NBA, WNBA and former NBA stars attempting to make baskets from different marked spots on the court with the last shot from halfcourt. There was a wrinkle in the event this year, with each team having to retrieve their own rebounds.

Team Bosh posted an opening round time of 30.8 seconds, while Team Westbrook hit all four of their shots in 35.2 seconds. The team of the Golden State Warriors' Stephen Curry, NBA Legend Dell Curry and Seattle Storm's Sue Bird finished their first round in 47 seconds and the trio of the Atlanta Hawks' Paul Millsap, NBA Legend Scottie Pippen and the Chicago Sky's Elena Delle Donne were last with a time of 51.4 seconds.

Millsap replaced the New Orleans Pelicans' Anthony Davis.
