NEW ORLEANS (AP) -- Portland's Damian Lillard is an NBA All-Star Saturday night skills challenge champion for a second straight year.

The team of Lillard and Trey Burke, representing the Western Conference, beat the tandem of Michael Carter-Williams and Victor Oladipo of the East in the final round by a tenth of a second.

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.

In the first round, Lillard and Burke beat Phoenix's Goran Dragic and Oklahoma City's Reggie Jackson.

Carter-Williams and Oladipo downed Milwaukee's Giannis Antetokounmpo and Toronto's DeMar DeRozan to represent the East in the final round.

The competitions opened with the shooting stars event, won by the trio of Miami's Chris Bosh, former NBA star Dominique Wilkins and WNBA player Swin Cash.
