CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - Charlotte native and Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry got beat in the finals as Brooklyn’s Joe Harris pulls off the shocker in the NBA 3 Point Shootout.
Harris got hot on his final rack in the finals as he hit all 5 shots to tally a score of 26.
Steph needed to make all of his shots going into the final rack to force a tie and take it into a shoot off, but he would miss 2.
Steph and his brother Seth made a wager earlier in the day that Seth would eventually lose. The bothers agreed that the loser in the first round would have to buy the family tickets anytime these two brothers would meet on the court for the rest of their careers.
Seth got 16 points in the first round and Steph got 27.
“It’s going to cost me," said Seth Curry. “It’s all good. It was worth it to go out there and put a little extra on the line.”
Charlotte Hornets guard Kemba Walker got the loudest ovation during player introductions but struggled in the first round as he only got 15 points and would not advance to the finals.
“I was a little nervous,” said Kemba Walker. “I can’t lie, but I had fun.”
Kemba will now turn his attention to Sunday’s NBA All-Star Game where he will be a starter.
