NBA Skills Challenge: Winner – Damian Lillard (Trail Blazers)
The Skills challenge was another great event where some of the best guards in the NBA put their skills and speed to the test. Portland Trail Blazers rookie star point guard Damian Lillard blew through the opening round of the skills challenge finishing in under 29 seconds. Atlanta Hawks guard Jeff Teague failed to finish the first round of the skills challenge in enough time to exceed to the second round, Teague finished the first round in an abysmal 49 seconds and became one of the only players to miss a layup in the skills challenge. Drew Holiday kept the match close, both he and Damian Lillard battled it out in the second round, however, Lillard’s speed and accuracy proved to much for Holiday as Lillard jetted through the final round in 29.8 seconds.
