Miami Heat forward Derrick Jones Jr. has been proclaimed champion of the NBA's All-Star weekend math contest, which is being held in Chicago (United States), in a controversial final against the player of Orlando Magic Aaron Gordon, while Bahamian escort Buddy Hield reigned in the triple contest and power forward Bam Adebayo, in the skills competition.

Jones, who in his second participation became the second player in the history of his franchise to win recognition after Harold Miner (1993 and 1995), slipped into the United Center final with Gordon, after a first round Almost without failures.

In that first phase, the Los Angeles Lakers pivot Dwight Howard fell, with remembrance of Kobe Bryant and Superman costume included, and the Milwaukee Bucks escort Pat Connaughton, who made a particular tribute to the movie 'The Whites Can't Get It' .

The show remained in the final round, where each player executed a pair of mates that received the maximum score of 50, perhaps some too inflated, so they had to perform two extra dumps to unpack.

Before the tie-breaker, Jones and Gordon met some first mates to ensure, before the one in Miami performed their best performance again using the ball between the legs. To this the eaves of the Magic responded with an action that should have been worth it to win the contest: Markelle Fultz helped him against the basket to, after a 360º turn, crush the hoop.

Thus, we had to solve with two more mates. After two first that did not serve to unpack, everything would be decided in the last for each player. After a 48-point Jones grinder run, Gordon wanted to risk and asked for Tacko Fall's help.

The one in Orlando jumped the 2.26 meters of the Senegalese pivot – who slightly bowed his head – and offered a show that, however, only served for Dwyane Wade, Scottie Pippen and Chadwick Boseman to put a 9 each, a 47 that It made him lose and it unleashed his anger. “It's over, I'm not coming back, I think I should have two trophies. My next goal will be to win the triple contest,” said Gordon, who also lost in 2016.

Hield reigns in triples and Adebayo in skills

Meanwhile, Sacramento Kings guard Buddy Hield was proclaimed champion of the triple contest in a final in which he beat Devin Booker by adding 27 points, for the 26 of the Phoenix Suns escort. The third place of the podium went to the Latvian power forward of Washington Wizards Davis Bertans, with 22 points.

In the first round, Trae Young (Atlanta Hawks, 15), Devonte 'Graham (Charlotte Hornets, 18), Duncan Robinson (Miami Heat, 19), Zach LaVine (Chicago Bulls, 23) and Joe Harris (Brooklyn Nets, 22) fell.

Bertans 22 to start the final was canceled by the 26 goals of Devin Booker, who still had to see how the Bahamian Buddy Hield, after a start with some failure, made two last cars perfect to take the win.

Meanwhile, Miami Heat forward power forward Bam Adebayo was crowned in the skills contest, after winning the Lithuanian power forward of Indiana Pacers Domantas Sabonis.

Adebayo did not miss a single pass or a single tray and was fine from the line of three, a performance that has earned him the second Heat player to win the event after Dwyane Wade (2006 and 2007).
