By sarahhecht Posted in: damianlillard
Damian Lillard wrapped up his participation in All-Star Weekend accepting a trophy for winning the Taco Bell Skills Challenge—he’s the first Trail Blazer in franchise history to win any event during All-Star Saturday Night.
During his first round he glided to the fastest time in the field of six players representing the West and East bumping defending champion Tony Parker, Jeremy Lin, Brandon Knight and Jeff Teague from the competition to meet Jrue Holiday in the finals.
Check out round one.
In the championship round he watched as Holiday miscued a couple passes during the circuit and struggled to make a shot from the top of the key earning him a time of 35.6 and leaving the door open for Lillard to take the crown.
Dame took to the floor for the last round and finished the course almost flawlessly with only two missed passes on his way to a final time of 29.8 second and the title!
Watch him win it.
And of course, you’re not officially a winner until you have the hardware. Congrats Dame!
