Kevin Love, Joe Johnson Among Challengers To James Jones In 3-Point Shootout

James Jones will be back at All-Star Weekend this year to defend his 3-Point Shootout title, but there's a new slate of challengers out to dethrone the Miami Heat reserve. Kevin Love, Joe Johnson, Ryan Anderson, Mario Chalmers and Anthony Morrow will compete in this year's contest, the NBA announced tonight.

Jones won the title in 2011 in his first attempt -- he'll be back later this month looking to make it 2-for-2. The only other returning contestant is Johnson, who first competed in 2005 but lost to Quentin Richardson.

Anderson leads the NBA this season in both 3's made (80) and attempted (190). Morrow sits tied for third in makes with 60, and has a dazzling career clip of 44.3 percent from downtown.

This year's All-Star festivities are slated for the end of this month in Orlando. The 3-point event takes place Saturday night, Feb. 25, with the All-Star Game tipping off the night of Feb. 26.
