All-Star Weekend Notes:

  • Austin Spurs guard Keifer Sykes did not disappoint in the D-League All-Star dunk contest, scoring 47 points on his first dunk (which you can catch below). Sykes would be eliminated after missing his second dunk attempt off the back of the rim, leading Raptors 905 guard John Jordan to win the championship after two perfect dunk scores.
  • 30-year-old Andre Ingram of the Los Angeles D-Fenders won the D-League 3-Point shootout, easily putting up 26 and 27 in his two rounds and beating out Jimmer Fredette. Ingram is the D-League’s all-time three-point leader, having knocked down 546 shots from beyond the arch in eights seasons. He was also the 2010 3-Point shootout champion.
