Steve Novak scored 17 points in the first round of the 3-point shooting contest.
Novak, who popularized the Discount Triple Check, was the last contestant to go in the All-Star 3-point shootout, but he failed to reach the finals.
While Novak only missed one money ball (worth two points), finishing with 17 points in the first round, Cleveland's Kyrie Irving had 18 to face off with San Antonio's Matt Bonner.
Irving, who represented the East, was the champion with a total score of 23 points. Bonner had 20. The other participants included Ryan Anderson (Hornets), Stephen Curry (Warriors) and Paul George (Pacers).
Novak's teammate, Carmelo Anthony, was sitting courtside during the shootout. Still, no current Knick has won the contest, which dates back to 1986, when Larry Bird became the first-time winner.
