2012 NBA All Star Three Point Contest: Kevin Love Takes Down Durant

In a battle of the Kevins, Kevin Love of the Minnesota Timberwolves upended Kevin Durant of the Oklahoma City Thunder in a bonus round in the finals of the 2012 NBA three point shooting contest.

The two were three of the finalists to advance past the first round, and needed overtime after each posted a final round score of 16. Joining them in the finals was Miami's James Jones, who won the competition in 2011 and posted the top score in the opening round with 22 points.

Other participants included Anthony Morrow of the Nets, Mario Chalmers of the Heat, and Ryan Anderson of the Orlando Magic, who was a favorite in front of the home crowd.

Love is attempting nearly four and half three pointers per game this season and is shooting 34.8% from beyond the arc.
