It was the Three-Point Contest final everyone wanted to see: Golden State's Stephen Curry vs. Golden State's Klay Thompson.
Though 2013 champion Kyrie Irving also was among the final three, all eyes were on the sharpshooting Warriors backcourt dubbed "The Splash Brothers."
Curry has never won this All-Star Saturday event, going 0-for-3. Curry would not make it 0-for-4.
He drained 13 consecutive treys in the final round - the Barclays crowd roaring louder with every make - and finished with 27 points, a single-round record for the NBA's Three-Point Contest.
"I've obviously been in it four times, so I wanted to win it and get it done," Curry said. "And thankfully tonight I got it."
The rules have changed since Chicago's Craig Hodges set the previous record in 1986 with 25 points, later matched by Toronto's Jason Kapono in 2008. An all money-ball rack was added in 2014, allowing players the chance at 34 points. Before then, a perfect score was 30.
Klay Thompson, who led all shooters in the first round with 24 points, followed Curry's hot-shooting final round with a dud. He hit only five of his final 15 shots, scoring a contest-low 14 points.
Curry said that even after putting up 27 points, however, he wasn't confident it would hold up against his opponent and teammate.
"He's obviously capable of 37 in a basketball quarter, so he can probably knock down a couple of threes and a get high number," Curry said.
In the first round, Curry and Thompson were the only two to hit money balls on every rack, leading the pack with 23 and 24 points, respectively.
It was no surprise the two met in the final, as they've combined for 400 three-pointers in back-to-to back seasons, making them only pair of teammates to accomplish that in NBA history.
"It was kind of cool for all of Dub Nation to have a 50/50 shot of one of us winning and bringing it back to the Bay Area," Curry said. "Pretty cool. Couldn't have planned that one any better."
