Making all five of his shots from the “money rack” in the NBA All-Star Three Point Contest wasn’t good enough for Suns guard Devin Booker to advance past the first round.

Booker’s score of 23 points ranked behind Golden State’s Stephen Curry, Sacramento’s Buddy Hield and Brooklyn’s Joe Harris, denying Booker the chance to defend his title from one year ago.

Harris posted a score of 25 in the first round and 26 in the final round to upset Curry in the finals.

Hometown crowd favorites Kemba Walker of Charlotte and Seth Curry of Portland, who grew up in Charlotte, also bowed out of the competition in the first round.

Other competitors included Milwaukee’s Kris Middleton, Dallas’ Dirk Nowitzki, Toronto’s Danny Green and Portland’s Damian Lillard.
