Indiana Pacers star Domantas Sabonis staged Luka Doncic and Chris Paul to win the NBA Skills Challenge.
Sabonis defeated Orlando Magic Center Nikola Vucevic in the final on Sunday before the All- Star game in Atlanta.
After losing to Miami Heat star Bam Adebayo last year, Sabonis went all the way in 2021 to test ball handling, passing and shooting skills .
« I just wanted to get out of here and have fun, » said Sabonis after winning at TNT.
Sabonis passed Julius Randle, the All-Star striker from New York Knicks, in the opening round before taking another clean win against Macer’s star Doncic in the semifinals.
Vucevic topped veteran Paul of the Phoenix Suns, but couldn’t stop Sabonis – who hit a three-pointer on his fourth attempt for the title.
