NEW ORLEANS (AP) – Miami’s Chris Bosh hit a half-court shot to give Team Bosh the victory in the Shooting Stars contest that opened up NBA All-Star Saturday night.

Bosh and teammates Dominique Wilkins and WNBA player Swin Cash had a final-round time of 31.4 seconds.

Each team must hit shots from 10 feet from a right-side angle, the top of the key, 3-point range and half court, and the team with the best time wins.

Team Durant, consisting of Kevin Durant, Karl Malone and Skylar Diggins, opened the final round with a time of 43.6.

There were two teams from each conference. Team Durant beat Team Curry _ made up of Dell Curry, Stephen Curry and Becky Hammon _ in the first round to represent the West. Team Bosh edged Team Hardaway _ consisting of Tim Hardaway Jr., Tim Hardaway Sr. and Elena Delle Donne in the first round.
