The Slam Dunk Contest features four players competing in two rounds. Each player will attempt two dunks in the first round. The two players with the highest combined scores for their two dunks will then advance to the final round. The finalists will attempt two more dunks, and the player with the highest combined score will win the Slam Dunk Contest.

Here are the 2022 Slam Dunk Contest participants:

The eight 3-Point Contest participants will shoot at the typical five locations along the arc with four racks of four regular balls (one point) and one money ball (two points), plus one special rack of five money balls. Players can choose their favorite spots for the money ball racks.

Two “MTN DEW Zones” will sit six feet behind the 3-point line. Each zone holds one green ball worth three points. With the addition of these zones, the NBA has increased the time limit from 60 seconds to 70 seconds and the maximum score from 34 points to 40 points.

The contest is separated into two rounds with the three highest-scoring players from the first round advancing to the final round. The player with the highest score in the final round will be crowned the winner.

The two teams with the most points through the first three rounds will advance to the final round. The complete round-by-round breakdown can be found here.
