Damian Lillard wins 2nd straight
NEW ORLEANS -- Portland's Damian Lillard is an NBA All-Star Saturday night skills challenge champion for a second straight year.
The skills course consists of dribbling around obstacles, passing to targets, and hitting shots from medium and close range. The winning time was 45.2 seconds.
"I keep asking Coach to let me shoot that shot in the game," Bosh said of Miami's Erik Spoelstra. "He won't let me do it yet, but I think that today will give him confidence if he was watching."
The East and West tied 2-2 in the All-Star Saturday festivities and the conferences split $500,000 in winnings for charity.
