NBA ALL-STAR SATURDAY


NBA ALL-STAR SATURDAY
The field: Mike Bibby, G, Hawks; Daequan Cook, G, Heat; Danny Granger, F, Pacers; Jason Kapono, G-F, Raptors; Rashard Lewis, F, Magic; Roger Mason, G, Spurs.

How it played out: Miami's Daequan Cook connected over and over again when the 3-Point Shootout went to an extra session Saturday night. When the long-distance contest went to overtime, Cook found his stroke. The Heat guard posted the best round of the competition with 19 points in the extra round, cruising past Orlando's Rashard Lewis to win the title and end Kapono's two-year run as king of one of All-Star Saturday's marquee events. Lewis sputtered in the third session, missing his first 11 shots to finish with seven points.

Cook had forced overtime in the event by hitting his final four shots in the second round of the six-man competition.

What they said: "It was very important for me to be focused. I felt this was my opportunity to show people that I should be considered as one of the elite 3-point shooters in the game, so tonight I came out and did that." - Daequan Cook

"This was one of the times this weekend that I wanted to take over. We've just been talking about it, and luckily I did it tonight."

- Cook, who said he looked to teammate Dwyane Wade for inspiration, who was cheering him on
