LaVine acknowledged his opponent's efforts as he accepted his second dunk title in as many years, saying he wanted to share the crown with Gordon.

Klay Thomspon, the eventual winner of the three-point contest, does sneak into the list thanks to his efforts against fellow Warriors star Steph Curry. Thompson's 27 points was enough to beat his teammate, who registered 23.

The NBA have also released previously unseen 'Free D' dunk contest footage:
