2011 NBA Three Point Contest: Miami Heat James Jones Beats Boston Celtic Duo

The Miami Heat have not been able to beat the Boston Celtics this season, at all. But for one night, the Heat can rightfully claim that they are better 3-point shooters.

Miami Heat reserve swingman James Jones, whose one job is to stand at the corners and chuck threes, won the Footlocker 3-point shootout, beating Paul Pierce (18) and Ray Allen (15) by scoring 20 points.

Ray Allen, who recently shattered Reggie Miller’s NBA record of 3-pointers made, struggled in the final round, making only 5 after the first two racks. Not quite what we expected from him. From the look of his mom’s face (who the camera kept following), Mama Allen was also surprised.
