Jones Jr., Adebayo, Hield winners at epic All-Star Saturday

 

CHICAGO (AP) — Aaron Gordon lost another epic dunk contest. And it was by a couple of inches — namely, the top of Tacko Fall’s head. Derrick Jones Jr. finally got his dunk contest title as an exclamation point to an epic All-Star Saturday Night, both for him and the Miami Heat. Jones and Gordon needed two extra dunks apiece in the final round before deciding a winner, Jones Jr. prevailing 48-47 in the one that determined who left with the trophy. Miami’s Bam Adebayo won the skills title as well, and Sacramento’s Buddy Hield took the 3-point crown.
