Phoenix Suns star guard Devin Booker is the winner of the 2018 NBA Three-Point Contest after putting together a ridiculous final round.
The 20-year-old dropped a score of 28 in the final round, good for an all-time record in the three-point contest (however, it’s worth noting that the “money ball” rack allowing for two points on each ball wasn’t added until 2014).
Devin Booker on how he got ready for the 3-pt competition. "My preparation was none." DB said he spent too much time preparing as a rookie & finished 3rd. Changed it up, chilled out & won the whole thing.

The Golden State Warriors’ Klay Thompson entered as the three-point contest favorite (and won it in 2016), and had a tremendous round himself of 25. But that wasn’t quite enough to top Booker.
