Like with his actual NBA team, Chris Bosh is a repeat champion.

By sinking a halfcourt shot in Saturday’s Sears Shooting Stars event, the Miami Heat forward sealed Team Bosh’s second straight title in the event. Bosh also finished first in the 2013 competition, which was held in Houston. Bosh’s teammates for a second consecutive year were NBA legend Dominique Wilkins and WNBA player Swin Cash.

The trio completed the final round in just 31.4 seconds. The three-person team was representing the Eastern Conference, giving the East an early lead in its head-to-head competition vs. the West. The winner of All-Star Saturday will donate money its winnings to charity.
