NEW YORK (AP) - Chris Bosh, Dominique Wilkins and Swin Cash won their third straight shooting stars competition to kick off All-Star Saturday night at Brooklyn's Barclays Center.

Wilkins, the 55-year-old former Atlanta Hawks star, hit a half-court shot after 57.6 seconds in the final round to seal Team Bosh's three-peat. They bested Russell Westbrook, Anfernee Hardaway and Tamika Catchings in the final round, when Team Westbrook ran out of time after 90 seconds.

Stephen Curry and his father, former NBA player Dell Curry, and WNBA star Sue Bird were knocked out in the opening round along with Paul Millsap, Scottie Pippen and Elena Delle Donne.

Curry will get another chance for a victory when he headlines the 3-point contest later Saturday night. Giannis Antetokounmpo, Victor Oladipo, Mason Plumlee and Zach LaVine were competing in the slam-dunk contest.
