This is by far one of my favorite NBA nights of the season. Let's pick some winners and see who can guess the trifecta correctly!

Kenneth Faried takes flight tonight.

What's up Stiffs!

This is easily one of the best nights of the season. People who try to say the dunk contest is no longer fun are cranky. What these athletes can do is amazing and the dunk contests are always good, if you're a fan of the game. The skills competition is not my favorite, but I'm trying to talk myself into it. My favorite event of the night is the three-point shootout - I love watching the long ball.

So who wins tonight? If anyone can guess the trifecta correctly -- we may have a prize for you!

Skills contest: Jrue Holiday (Sixers), Brandon Knight (Pistons), Jeff Teague (Hawks), Damian Lillard (Blazers), Jeremy Lin (Rockets), Tony Parker (Spurs).

Three-point shootout: Paul George (Pacers), Kyrie Irving (Cavaliers), Steve Novak (Knicks), Ryan Anderson (Hornets), Matt Bonner (Spurs), Stephen Curry (Warriors).

Dunk contest: Gerald Green (Pacers), Terrence Ross (Raptors), James White (Knicks), Eric Bledsoe (Clippers), Jeremy Evans (Jazz), Kenneth Faried (Nuggets).

Who ya got?
