Steph Curry is locked in. 

The seven-time NBA All-Star told reporters Sunday that he still gets butterflies before All-Star Games but it sure didn't look like it as he practices for the 3-Point Contest. 

Curry will be participating in the event for the first time since he was upset by Joe Harris in the final round in 2019. He has participated six times in the past but has taken home the trophy just once. 

The Warriors superstar is averaging 29.7 points per game this season. He's shooting 41.1 percent from 3-point range, while averaging a career-high 11.7 3s per game. His 169 3s lead the NBA this season, as well as his 411 attempts from beyond the arc.

Curry will compete against Devin Booker, Jaylen Brown, Zach LaVine, Donovan Mitchell and Jayson Tatum.

The Skills Challenge and 3-Point Contest will take place right before Sunday's tip-off. The Slam Dunk Contest will take part at halftime of the All-Star Game.
