Kevin Love's run in the 3-point contest on All-Star Saturday night in New Orleans didn't last long.

The Timberwolves All-Star forward, who won the contest in 2012, was pegged to go first in the eight-man competition. Love went on to post 16 points. He was eliminated one player later when Portland's Damian Lillard put up 18 points.

San Antonio's Marco Belinelli needed a tiebreaker round, but he went on to beat the Wizards' Bradley Beal with 24 points.

The main event of All-Star weekend, the 63rd edition of the All-Star game, is scheduled for Sunday (7 p.m. CT). Love will join Curry, Oklahoma City's Kevin Durant, the Clippers' Blake Griffin and Houston's James Harden in the Western Conference starting lineup.
