NBA All-Star Game: Kevin Love Will Compete In Three Point Shooting Contest

Kevin Love says he will compete in the 2012 three-point shooting contest during All-Star Weekend.

Minnesota Timberwolves forward Kevin Love will compete in the NBA All-Star Weekend three-point shooting contest, according to the Star Tribune's Jerry Zgoda.

Love is an alternate on the 2012 NBA West All-Star squad.

Love barely made the NBA All-Star game last season, added as an injury replacement for Yao Ming. He scored two points and grabbed four rebounds in last season's All-Star game.

Love has missed the team's past two games due to a suspension following his stepping on the face of Houston Rockets forward Luis Scola.

A 38% shooter from three-point range, Love has made 42-111 three-pointers this season. Last year, he shot 41%, a career-best. Still, he thinks he's got a good shot at winning the contest this year.

"I think I got a good shot at anything I do. I’m a pretty competitive guy."
