Sports Central

Is a member of the Milwaukee Bucks the best three-point shooter in the NBA? At least for one night, Khris Middleton could be.

The Bucks guard is scheduled to take part in next Saturday night's NBA three-point shooting contest at All-Star Weekend in Toronto. It happens at the Air Canada Centre at 7:30 p.m. CT. on February 13.

The Bucks' Ray Allen won the event in 2001.

Teammate Jabari Parker is set to play for Team USA in an NBA game for young stars the night before, on February 12.

Entering Thursday night, Middleton was making 41.2 percent of his three-point shots - 15th in the NBA. He's made 100 three-pointers this year, 16th in the league. He is also third in the NBA in minutes played and 9th in minutes played per game (36.0/game).
