NBA Three-Point Shootout 2012 Preview And Participants

The NBA's sharpest shooters will be on display on Saturday night, as six of the best three point shooters in the land will be competing in the 2012 Foot Locker Three-Point Shootout as a part of NBA All Star Weekend at Amway Center in Orlando, Florida.

While this year's pool of players do not include former champions and current Celtics Ray Allen and Paul Pierce, there is a very unique lineup on display this evening. Last year's defending champ James Jones of the Miami Heat will be leading the pack of Thunder star Kevin Durant, Nets swingman Anthony Morrow, Timberwolves big man Kevin Love (yeah, I'm not kidding), Magic sharpshooter Ryan Anderson and fellow Heat teammate Mario Chalmers.

This appears to be a wide open field, as none of these six players rank within the top five in the NBA in three point field goal percentage.

Game information and TV Schedule as follows:

All-Star Event Order Number: Three

Location: Amway Center, Orlando, Fla.

Time: Events start on Sat, Feb. 25 at 8:30 p.m. EDT.
