Steph Curry defeated Sabrina Ionescu in the first-ever NBA vs. WNBA 3-point contest on Saturday night during All-Star Weekend. Ionescu started her round on fire and finished with 26 points. The score tied for the highest for any NBA player in the night’s standard 3-point competition, which was won earlier in the night by Damian Lillard. Curry countered by making his final four straight Moneyball shots to close with 29 points.

“For us to deliver a show like that, it was perfect,” Curry said afterward. “As much excitement as you can build in that short amount of time with two great shooters going at it. This is something we’ll remember for a long time.” From there, it was Mac McClung’s night in the dunk contest.
