Here's a look at the results for the Warriors' players who took part in Saturday's NBA All-Star festivities in New Orleans.

Rising Star forward Harrison Barnes failed to get a single vote for the West squad in the Slam Dunk Contest which was dampened by a new format.

Barnes actually did a layup in the freestyle round and his subsequent two-handed single pump dunk was no match for a 360 by Indiana's Paul George.

All-Star guard Stephen Curry made three half-court shots in practice, but was eliminated in the first-round of the 3-Point Contest which was won by former Warrior guard Marco Belinelli who now plays for San Antonio.
