NBA All-Star Game: James Jones, Kevin Love Headline Three-Point Shootout

The NBA has announced the 2012 Foot Locker Three-Point Shootout field for All-Star Weekend and it will be headlined by defending champion James Jones of the Miami Heat and Minnesota Timberwolves All-Star Kevin Love.

They'll be joined by Atlanta Hawks guard Joe Johnson, Miami Heat point guard Mario Chalmers, Orlando Magic forward Ryan Anderson and New Jersey Nets guard Anthony Morrow.

Jones bested Paul Pierce and Ray Allen to win the contest last year and will look to become the first back-to-back winner since Jason Kapono did it in '07 and '08. Other NBA players who have won the contest twice include Jeff Hornacek, Mark Price and Peja Stojakovic. Larry Bird and Craig Hodges both won the contest three times.

Of those in the field, Anderson has the highest total of 3-pointers with 80 while Chalmers's .463 shooting percentage is the highest.

The event will be part of the TNT's All-Star Saturday coverage that begins at 8 p.m. Feb. 25.
