During the NBA All-Star Weekend, Stephen Curry secured a historic victory in an unparalleled 3-point contest against Sabrina Ionescu.

The highly anticipated showdown took place on All-Star Saturday night, where Curry's precision from beyond the arc secured him the win with an impressive 29 points.

Despite Ionescu's decision to shoot from the NBA's 23 feet, 9 inches line with a WNBA ball, Curry's clutch performance stole the spotlight.

Ionescu, starting the shootout as determined by fan votes, displayed remarkable accuracy in the early rounds, ending with 26 points. However, Curry's ability to thrive under pressure came to the forefront as he dominated the last rack to secure the victory.

While Ionescu had set a record with a remarkable 37-point round in the previous WNBA All-Star Weekend, Curry's triumph added a new chapter to the 3-point contest narrative. 

The intensity of the competition was palpable, with Curry openly expressing nervousness before the event, acknowledging the global audience watching his every move.


Notably, Damian Lillard, representing the Milwaukee Bucks, also showcased his 3-point prowess, winning the contest with a final round score of 26 points. 

Lillard's back-to-back victories marked a significant achievement, making him the first player since Jason Kapono in 2007 and '08 to achieve such a feat.

Looking ahead, fans can anticipate the possibility of rematches, as both Ionescu and Curry expressed interest in facing each other again.
 


With the 2024 All-Star Game set to be hosted by Curry's Golden State Warriors, the prospect of witnessing these stellar shooters in action once more adds an exciting layer to the future of NBA All-Star festivities. (SOURCE: Yahoo Sports)
