Steph vs. Sabrina 3-Point Contest rules  

This event will follow a similar rules format as the standard 3-Point Contest. Both participants will go through four racks with four game balls and one "money ball" on each. A fifth rack will have all "money balls" and the contestants can choose their spot for that portion. There are also two long-range shots. The game balls are worth one point, the "money balls" are worth two and the long-range shots award three points. 

The official rules state that Curry will shoot from NBA range, while Ionescu will utilize the WNBA 3-point line. However, Ionescu told reporters that she practices from NBA range and plans to use that line as well. She will use a regulation WNBA ball, while Curry will use a standard NBA ball.
