All-Stars Pierce, Allen, Durant in 3-point contest

Paul Pierce will defend his 3-point shootout
title against a field that includes fellow Boston Celtics All-Star
Ray Allen and NBA scoring leader Kevin Durant of Oklahoma City.
Allen is on the verge of becoming the career leader in
3-pointers made. He won the title 10 years ago while playing for
Milwaukee. Pierce was the champion last year in Dallas, scoring 20
points in the final round to beat Stephen Curry.
The remainder of the field announced Tuesday is Miami's James
Jones, Golden State's Dorell Wright and Cleveland's Daniel Gibson.
The 3-point contest will be part of All-Star events on Feb. 19
in Los Angeles.
