Curry will look to defend his title from last year where he beat Klay Thompson and Kyrie Irving.

Thompson will look to prove that he can shoot just as well as his fellow Splash Brother.

The rest of the field will be looking to take down the hottest shooting duo in the league.

For those who do not know how the layout works, the contest consists of two rounds. The first round, all eight players will shoot five balls from five different spots for 25 total shots. The first four racks consist of four balls worth one point and the fifth worth two points. The fifth rack consists of all balls worth two points each. This comes to a total of 34 possible points.

The top three players from round one will compete one more time to crown the winner.
