FIBA Europe 3x3 EuroTour, which is run in association with Romanian Basketball Federation and Sport Arena Streetball, has successfully opened in Bucharest.

Almost 150 games were played on day one and as the air temperature was starting to drop with the sun setting behind the worlds largest civilian building - the Palace of Parliament, the heat on all eight state-of-the-art 3x3 courts was reaching its maximum as the teams battled the day off.

As day two progresses and elite men and women squads are entering the competition, everyone is in anticipation of the highlight of the tournament - the Slam Dunk Contest, which is scheduled for late Saturday.

World class high flyers Justin Darlington, Porter Maberry, Kristaps Dargais and Alexander Shaligin are here to entertain the crowd and show off their skills of defying the gravity.

Following Sarunas Marciulionis, who paid his visit to the event on Friday, Spanish star Jorge Garbajosa is in attendance today.

Stay tuned for more news and photos from Bucharest.
