NBA’s All-Star Weekend continued on Saturday with the Dunk Contest and the Three-Point Contest, but the Taco Bell Skills Challenge was the first event of the night. Jayson Tatum became the first member of the Boston Celtics to win the NBA Skills Challenge defeating Trae Young in dramatic fashion in the final.

Nikola Vucevic was eliminated from the first round by Nikola Jokic, who was taken out by the eventual winner, Tatum, in the second round. The other finalist, Young, got the bragging rights over Luka Doncic beating the Slovenian sensation in the semifinals stage. Mike Conley, De’Aaron Fox and Kyle Kuzma also participated.
