2012 NBA Shooting Stars Competition: Team New York Cruises To Victory

The second night of the NBA's All-Star weekend kicked off with the Haier Shooting Stars competition, featuring four teams representing four different regions: Texas, New York, Orlando and Atlanta.

Current Knick Landry Fields was joined by former Knick Allan Houston and Cappie Pondexter of the WNBA's New York Liberty on Team New York.

Each team was charged with hitting six shots per round, including one from half-court. Team New York and Team Texas advanced to the finals, with New York posting a first-round best score of 38.7 seconds.

Team New York breezed through the first five shots in the final round, before missing on several attempts from half-court to end the competition. Fortunately, Houston swished a half-court attempt to propel Team New York to victory with a final round time of 37.3 seconds.
