HOUSTON -- Portland rookie Damian Lillard, an Oakland native, beat Philadelphia guard Jrue Holiday in the final round to win the Skills Competition during All-Star Saturday night.
The competition involves players navigating a dribbling circuit, taking a 3-point shot, hitting targets with passes and driving for a layup. Lillard swished his first 3-point attempt in his winning run and finished the obstacle course in 29.8 seconds. Holiday's time was 35.6 seconds.
"I've played basketball a long time, and I grew up in a tough city," Lillard said, explaining his poised demeanor.
Houston point guard Jeremy Lin and defending champion Tony Parker of the San Antonio Spurs also were in the field.
Earlier, a team of Chris Bosh, Swin Cash and Dominique Wilkins won the Shooting Stars competition, beating the trio of Russell Westbrook, Maya Moore and Robert Horry.
Dunk contest: Toronto rookie Terrence Ross beat defending champion Jeremy Evans to win the slam-dunk contest. The 6-foot-6 Ross jumped over a ball boy, whipped the ball between his legs and threw down a one-handed slam to clinch the victory.
Evans jumped over a painted portrait of himself and hurdled Dallas Mavericks forward Dahntay Jones for a dunk in his final round.
Added duties for Curry: The Warriors' Stephen Curry was one of six new players elected to the union's executive committee in voting by 24 player
"It will be good experience for me," Curry said.
Also elected were James Jones, Roger Mason Jr., Chris Paul, Andre Iguodala and Willie Green. All will serve three-year terms.
Kings: Without saying how, NBA commissioner David Stern said Sacramento has a chance of beating out what he has said is a strong bid from a group that has reached an agreement to buy the team from the Maloof family with the goal of moving it to Seattle.
"Oh, certainly it's plausible to me, but I don't have a vote," Stern said. "But I expect the owners to have a very open mind on this."
Stern said owners will continue to discuss the plans and will hear from Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson with the goal of deciding at their April board meeting.
Stern plans to retire Feb. 1, 2014.
