On Saturday in Orlando, a long night of NBA All-Star Weekend festivities resulted in one Bay Area representative taking home a trophy.

Stanford Cardinal alum Landry Fields took home first place as part of Team New York in the annual Haier Shooting Stars competition. The event, which featured four teams each comprised of a current NBA player, a current WNBA player and an NBA legend, required the teammates to alternate different shots from different spots on the court, ending with a half-court shot in each round. The team with the best time wins. Fields and his teammates, Cappie Poindexter and Allan Houston, managed the best time of 37.3 seconds to bring home the trophy.

In the Taco Bell Skills Challenge, an obstacle course consisting of dribbling, passing and shooting, Tony Parker of the San Antonio Spurs took home the trophy by topping Rajon Rondo's time in a playoff.

In the Foot Locker 3-Point Contest, Kevin Love and Kevin Durant had a finals tiebreaker which ended with Love taking home the prize by a final score of 17-14.

The evening wrapped up with the Sprite Slam Dunk Competition, often the most memorable part of the All-Star Weekend. Chase Budinger, Derrick Williams, Jeremy Evans and Paul George, relative unknowns, were the four participants in the contest. For the first time, the winner of the Dunk Contest was decided by Twitter vote and text message. Over 3 million votes were cast and the winner of the contest was Evans, with over 29% of the vote. His highlight dunk was his second, where he dunked two balls at once.
