HOUSTON (AP) - The trio of Miami's Chris Bosh, WNBA star Swin Cash and Hall of Famer Dominique Wilkins won the Shooting Stars competition that kicked off All-Star Saturday night in Houston.
Bosh's group beat the team of Oklahoma City guard Russell Westbrook, Maya Moore of the WNBA and former Houston Rocket Robert Horry.
The teams had two minutes to make shots from six locations on the floor, including one from half-court.
Wilkins sank a half-court shot for a team time of 1 minute, 29 seconds. Westbrook rimmed out several half-court tries and time ran out before he and his teammates could make one.
The NBA tweaked the scoring format for this year's All-Star skills exhibitions, with teams representing the East and West competing for charities.
