Allan Houston, Team New York Wins Shooting Stars At NBA All-Star 2012

Allan Houston sunk two halfcourt shots to lead Team New York to a victory in the 2012 Haier Shooting Stars competition on All-Star Saturday. Houston, who works in the New York Knicks' basketball operations, served as the legend for Team New York. Knicks guard Landry Fields was the active NBA player on the winning squad, and Cappie Pondexter of the New York Liberty was the WNBA rep.

The competition involved teammates alternating shots from different spots on the floor and ended with the players attempting halfcourt shots until one of them made it.

TNT analyst Kenny Smith made both halfcourt shots for the runner-up, Team Texas. But that team's finals run took a bit too much as the Houston Rockets rookie Chandler Parsons' arms apparently fell asleep during intermission, allowing the wing to take only one shot every 10 seconds. (That's a rough estimate.)

Team Atlanta (starring Jerry Stackhouse ... as the active player) and hometown Team Orlando bombed in the first round.
