Milwaukee Bucks guard Khris Middleton fell short Saturday night in the 2016 Foot Locker Three-Point competition in Toronto.

Middleton finished with only 13 points in the first-round and was eliminated early after he couldn't top Klay Thompson (22), James Harden (20) and J.J. Redick (20).

Harden, Redick and Devin Booker (20) competed in a tiebreaker to advance to the final round against Golden State's Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson. Booker advanced after finishing with 12 compared to just 9 for Redick and 8 for Harden.

Among the final three, Thompson (27) ended up taking the Three-Point championship crown from his fellow teammate Curry (23) on the last rack. The 27 points Thompson scored actually tied the high Curry set last year when he won the competition.
