Two European bigs, Lithuanian Arvydas Sabonis and Montenegrin Nikola Vucevic faced each other in the final of the skills challenge with the son of the legendary Arvydas Sabonis winning the title.

Both of them gave a great show, beating in the semifinals Slovenian Luka Doncic and Chris Paul respectively, however, Sabonis, who was perfect in his two runs in the first two rounds, was faster than Vucevic and won the trophy.

Sabonis became the third European to win the skills challenge after Frenchman Tony Parker in 2012 and Latvian Kristaps Porzingins in 2017.

Steph Curry dominated with an iconic performance in the three-point contest beating Mike Conley in the final by making his final shot, while Anfernee Simons from Portland won a forgettable slam dunk contest.
