TORONTO (AP) - Klay Thompson of the Golden State Warriors has beaten teammate Stephen Curry to win the 3-point contest on All-Star Saturday night.

Thompson scored 27 points in the final round, making his last eight shots to beat Curry and Phoenix's Devin Booker. Curry scored 23 points and Booker finished with 16 in the final round.

Curry was the event's defending champion.

Thompson made 19 of his 25 shots in the final round, and that even bettered his 18-for-25 showing in the first round. Combine them, and Thompson shot a staggering 74 percent - 37 for 50 - from long range over the course of the night.
