Stephen Curry vs. Sabrina Ionescu live scores, results, highlights from 2024 3-Point Challenge

Two all-time shooters will go head-to-head on NBA All-Star Saturday Night.

Warriors sharpshooter Stephen Curry is set to face off against Liberty sniper Sabrina Ionescu in a long-awaited, highly anticipated showdown at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.

The latest addition to All-Star Weekend has been brewing ever since Ionescu set a 3-Point Contest record at WNBA All-Star Weekend over the summer. Ionescu only missed two of her 3-point attempts, recording 37 out of 40 available points while hitting a streak of 20 consecutive makes.

Her hot hand drew Curry’s attention, calling the performance, “RIDICULOUS!” Ionescu responded, asking, “Shoot out??” while tagging Curry. A few months later, here we are.

As the two long-range bombers get ready to fire away, The Sporting News has you covered with live updates, highlights and more from Curry and Ionescu’s 3-Point Challenge.
