This year's contest features a new look with the addition of two shots in the "MTN DEW Zone" - two locations positioned equidistant between the traditional racks at the top of the 3-point arc and the adjacent "wing" rack. Each of the two ball pedestals in the MTN DEW Zone is located six feet behind the 3-point line and holds one special green ball, the "3-Ball." Shots made with the green ball are worth three points.
In addition to the two new shots, the MTN DEW 3-Point Contest will continue to have five main shooting locations - four racks containing four official NBA game balls (each worth one point) and one multicolored "money" ball (worth two points) as well as one special "all money ball" rack. Every ball on the all money ball rack, which each participant can place at any of the five traditional shooting locations, is worth two points.
The 34th MTN DEW 3-Point Contest is part of State Farm All-Star Saturday Night, which also features the Taco Bell Skills Challenge and AT&T Slam Dunk.
