The Miami Heat ended All-Star Saturday night finishing just short of sweeping all three contests.

Bam Adebayo started the night off beating Domantas Sabonis in the Skills Challenge — yes, two bigs advanced to the final round. In the first round of the Skills Challenge, Adebayo actually made everything on his first attempt, including a 3-pointer.

But Duncan Robinson didn’t even make it past the first round of the 3-Point Shootout.

And in the Dunk Contest, Aaron Gordon and Derrick Jones Jr. advanced past the first round. The two each got perfect scores in the final round, leading to a “Dunk-Off.” And in a controversial finish, Jones Jr. edged Gordon. Judges Dwyane Wade, Candace Parker and Scottie Pippen docked points from Gordon’s final dunk, in which he leaped over the 7-foot-5 Tako Fall.
