Klay Thompson was coming in as the 2/1 favorite to win the 2018 3-Point Shooting Contest in Saturday's NBA All-Star Weekend competition.

“I have a lot of competition,” the Golden State Warriors player said of his appearance. “I’ll play hard. I’ll shoot the ball and hopefully try to put on a show for the hometown fans.”

Eric Gordon would pay out $45 for every $10 bet should he win the 3-Point Contest.

The Houston Rockets starter credits his dad for the opportunity to take part in this weekend's 3-Point Shooting competition.

"My jump shot is almost a set shot in a way, but I've shot the same way since I was 9," Eric Jr. said. "That's what he told me to do. He put the ball in my hands and told me, 'Shoot this way.' I made one shot and he was like, 'Do it for the rest of your life.' It worked out pretty well.

Devin Booker would pay out $60 while Paul George would pay out $70 with a win in this contest.
