Former Bruin Kevin Love Wins 3-Point Shootout

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Minnesota forward Kevin Love won the 3-point Shootout during the NBA’s All-Star Saturday festivities.

Love was consistent throughout, but had to survive a tiebreaker in the first round and sweat out the last few shots from Oklahoma City’s Kevin Durant to pull out the 17-14 victory in the final.

Love tied for third in Round 1 with 18, along with Miami’s Mario Chalmers, but beat him 5-4 in a tiebreaker. Defending champion James Jones led all shooters in the opening round with 22 and Durant was next with 20.

Orlando’s Ryan Anderson just missed eliminating both Love and Chalmers, totaling 17 after missing his final 2-point money ball.

Love and Durant both had 16 in Round 2 to advance to the finals, with Jones posting 12.
