Keep an eye open for the Raptors’ Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan throughout the weekend. The former will be participating in the JBL Three-Point Contest (and hoping for a better result than the last couple of times he’s been in it — and no wrist surgery please!).
And of course both Lowry and DeRozan will be playing in the big game as part of Team Curry. In a delightful twist: Dwane Casey and his staff will head-up Team LeBron, their competition.
It’ll be fun, I’m sure. And we’ll have more coverage for you as the weekend progresses.
