Video Recap of the Skills Competition


This year’s skills competition pitted 6 quick and dynamic point guards against each other in the ultimate test of agility and skill. The many wonders of the internet have allowed fans to easily rewatch the competition in Youtube form.

Jeff Teague has a disappointing run missing some easy passes and repeatedly bricking his jumper. He even blew the layup at the end.

Jeremy Lin had a solid run. His only major mark was missing a couple times from above the free throw line.

Jrue Holiday, thought being the bulkiest participant, used his athleticism to maneuver through the course with ease and threw down a dunk to punch his ticket to the second round.

Brandon Knight nailed the passes but struggled a bit shooting the ball. Still he finished with the best score of the Eastern Conference players.

Tony Parker seemed a little over confident, leaving stations before completely his objective. He really struggled shooting the ball. (Sorry about the music on this one).

Damian Lillard used his silky smooth handle to motor through the course in both rounds and take home the victory.
