Damian Lillard says he’s going to win the Three-Point Contest during NBA All-Star Weekend next month.

Lillard is unfazed by the fact that he’ll be going up against Stephen Curry and his younger brother Seth.

Dame plans on beating the sharp-shooting brothers “in their hometown” of Charlotte.

Per The Oregonian:

“I’m going to win,” Lillard said after practice on Tuesday. “I’m in there to win so of course I think I’m going to win.”

Lillard confirmed reports last weekend that he and teammate Seth Curry will participate in the event during NBA All-Star weekend next month (Feb. 15-17).

“We’re going to be in there together, that’s confirmed,” Lillard said. “I know he’s in and I’m in. I’m shooting against the Currys, in their hometown.”

This year will give Lillard — who attempts eight triples per game and is eighth in the NBA in threes made this season with 142 — another chance at the three-point crown after coming up short in 2014 under the East vs. West format.

“I’m coming back for it this year.”
