2004 NBA ALL STAR 3-POINT SHOOT-OUT CONTEST LOS ANGELES
- Winner: Voshon Lenard (DEN)
- In his first appearance, Denver Nuggets shooting guard Voshon Lenard was able to break the streak of 2 consecutive victories of Stojakovic.
- By second consecutive year, only 6 players participated in the contest. In addition to the Kings forward, Rashard Lewis was the only player with some experience in the contest (eliminated in the first round in 2001), but his 16 points were not enough to reach the final, like contest newcomers Mobley and Billups that only made respectively 13 and 12.
- Lenard with a regular performance did 18. The rookie of the Philadelphia 76ers Kyle Korver confirmed that he is one of the best shooters and made the final with 19 points including a spectacular streak of 9 consecutive 3 pointers.
- Meanwhile, Stojakovic confirmed his favoritism with 21.
- In the final Kyle Korver only made 15 points, for the 18 of Voshon Lenard. When everything seemed to indicate that Stojakovic would win the contest for the third consecutive year, he only got 16 points in the final series, his worst performance in his 4 contest finals.
- In the last attempt, Peja had the possibility of tying with Lenard, but it failed the 2 point ball.
- Lenard got the victory thanks to his success with the ABA balls tricolors (he made the 5) and in spite of scoring a basket less than Peja.
