Bomb Squad: Pierce In, House Out Of 3-Point Contest

The NBA 3-Point Shootout during All-Star Weekend will feature some green. Sources tell SportsCenter 5 that captain Paul Pierce will take part in the event, which is set for Saturday, February 13 at the American Airlines Center in Dallas.

The NBA will release the full list of participants later tonight. Phoenix Suns center Channing Frye has said he will be taking part.

One name fans will not see on that list is reserve guard Eddie House. Fans rallied behind him after the team released a series of humorous House videos, one of which featured him shoveling off an outdoor court to practice.

For the record, Pierce is the better shooter THIS SEASON (46.7% for Pierce, 36.7% for House), but House holds the career edge, 39.3% to Pierce’s 37.0%. House also has an extremely quick release that would seemingly give him an edge in a competition like this, as opposed to Pierce’s more deliberate motion.
