On Saturday night, New York Knicks guard Steve Novak will participate in the Three-Point Contest. He'll be matched up against Paul George of Indiana and Kyrie Irving of Cleveland. The Western Conference representatives are Ryan Anderson of New Orleans, Matt Bonner of San Antonio and Stephen Curry of Golden State.

On the season, Novak is hitting 44.1 percent of his three pointers with the Knicks. That's currently good for third-best in the NBA amongst qualified players. Novak has as good of a chance as anyone to win the competition, especially with his quick release and smooth stroke from behind the arc.
