Rockets fans got to see a couple of their stars shine on All-Star Saturday night in the Shooting Stars Challenge as James Harden drains the half-court shot and Jeremy Lin showing his skills.
Both players wouldn’t come out on the winning end but they love playing the role of hosts this weekend.
Cleveland’s Kyrie Irving showed off his long distance stroke, winning the 3-point Championship.
And then it was time to slam home the night with the Slam Dunk Competition. Houston Rockets legends were courtside as the panel of judges.
There were too many missed dunks and we kind of wish for the good old days when stars like Michael Jordan and Dominique Wilkins battled it out.
Jordan turns 50 today and we can think of no better present than slamming the door on the Slam Dunk competition until real stars compete again.
