Portland Trail Blazers rookie guard Damian
Lillard captured the second contest of Saturday night’s All-Star festivities,
defeating Philadelphia 76ers guard Jrue Holiday with a time of 29.8 seconds in
the Skills Challenge competition.

The Skills Challenge is an obstacle course, which tests a guard’s dribbling,
passing and shooting abilities.

Lillard finished the course about six seconds quicker than Holiday in the
final round to take the crown, helping the West earn 10 points toward their
total score for the night.

At the conclusion of all the competitions, NBA Cares and State Farm will
donate $350,000 to the winning conference’s charities with $150,000 going to
the losing conference’s charities.
