DUNK CONTEST
A red cape trailing behind him, Orlando's Dwight Howard made like Superman and won the dunk contest to close a memorable All-Star Saturday. Using a variety of props as well as teammate Jameer Nelson, Howard scored perfect 50s from judges on his first two dunks before the contest was turned over to fan voting for the first time in the final round. Fans, too, picked the 6-foot-11 Howard.

3-POINT SHOOTOUT
Jason Kapono won his second straight 3-point Shootout on All-Star Saturday, tying a 22-year-old record with a final round of 25. The Toronto forward matched three-time winner Craig Hodges' mark of 25 set in 1986.

SPEAKING
``It's really for the big men. Everybody always says, big men can't jump and big men don't look good dunking. I just tried to add a little bit of my personality. With me being so tall, I knew it was going to be tough. I tried to play to the crowd and have fun.'' - Orlando's Dwight Howard after winning the slam-dunk contest to close a memorable All-Star Saturday.
