Dirk's Daggers Light Up Houston
Dirk Nowitzki's smooth outside shooting stroke was on display in Houston, as the Dallas 7-footer defeated Gilbert Arenas and Ray Allen to take home the victory in the 2006 Foot Locker Three-Point Shootout. Nowitzki finished with 18 points in the final round, while Arenas tallied 16 and Allen collected 15. Defending champion Quentin Richardson failed to make it out of the first round. He and Chauncey Billups both banked 12 points. Dirk's teammate Jason Terry finished with 13 first-round points.
