Joe Harris was en fuego on All-Star Saturday Night against some of the most prolific shooters the league has ever seen.

The Brooklyn Nets marksman walked away as the winner of the MTN DEW Three-Point Contest at the Spectrum Center in Charlotte, defeating hometown favorite Stephen Curry of the Golden State Warriors and Sacramento Kings guard Buddy Hield in the final round with a score of 26.

"Obviously it's incredible," Harris said of his win, according to ESPN's Nick Friedell. "Steph is the greatest shooter of all time. Again, shooting off of the rack for a minute is not indicative of being a better shooter than Steph Curry. I don't want anybody to get it twisted at all. He's come in and won this thing (in 2015) and lost. He's participated a number of different times. So for me to come in my first time and to win obviously is quite a surreal experience."

Harris currently ranks second in the Association in 3-point percentage at a scorching 47.1 percent and 16th in makes from beyond the arc with 132.
