Deron Williams of the Nets advanced to the Final Round of Skills Challenge and lost to Tony Parker of the Spurs. Williams started the night off well with a solid under 30 second perfect round through the course. The following round he missed four jumpers from the foul line and that did him in.
Anthony Morrow shot a 14 in the first round of his first 3 pt Shootout competition and didn’t advance although he represented the Nets by wearing a Petrovic jersey. Kevin Love took the 3pt Contest in a playoff with Kevin Durant with a 17.
