"I get to bring this home finally," Curry said of the trophy. "The Splash Bros bring it back. So this one goes out to Klay Thompson. We got it done, big fella."

It was Curry's second 3-Point Contest victory. He first claimed the title in 2015, and Thompson won the following year. Devin Booker, Joe Harris and Buddy Hield won the event the past three years before Curry brought the hardware back to the Bay Area.
