Taco Bell Skills Challenge (2nd Event)

2015 Taco Bell Skills Challenge

Patrick Beverley pulls the upset and takes the Taco Bell Skills Challenge.

UPDATE: Patrick Beverley wins
Event Page
Houston's Patrick Beverley came from behind in the semifinal and final rounds to win the Taco Bell Skills Challenge. In the semis, Beverley struggled with the chest pass portion of the course, allowing Atlanta's Jeff Teague to build a big lead. But when Teague couldn't knock down the final jumper, Beverley caught up and sank his first attempt to advance. His championship round against Milwaukee's Brandon Knight followed a similar route, as Beverley again struggled with passing, but made his first shot to take home the Skills Challenge title.

Stephen Curry dominates to win the Foot Locker Three-Point contest.

UPDATE: Stephen Curry wins

Best shooter ever? Stephen Curry just might own that title before it's all said and done. The Golden State Warriors All-Star owned the floor, fighting off one of the most talented fields in the history of the Foot Locker Three-Point Contest to take home the title.

Curry nailed 13 in a row and finished with 27 points in a ridiculous championship round effort to fight off his Splash Bros and fellow All-Star Klay Thompson and Cleveland Cavaliers All-Star Kyrie Irving in the championship round.

Sprite Slam Dunk (4th Event)

2015 Sprite Slam Dunk Recap

Rookie Timberwolves star Zach LaVine gets two perfect scores to win the Sprite Slam Dunk contest.

UPDATE: Zach LaVine wins
Event Page
Zach LaVine immediately raised the stakes when he walked onto the court wearing a No. 23 Michael Jordan jersey from the 1996 movie "Space Jam."

By the time he tossed the ball ahead, caught it with his left hand, went between his legs to his right and threw down a windmilling whipsaw on his first attempt of the night, the only thing left was to quote another of the film's famous co-stars: "Th-th-th-that's all, folks!"

The 19-year-old Timberwolves rookie became the Sprite Slam Dunk champion with a precocious, out-of-this-world display of athleticism and imagination. He's also the second-youngest champion in the history of the event — Kobe Bryant was 18 — by defeating Victor Oladipo of the Magic in the finals by a score of 94-72.

2015 Particpants:
> Giannis Antetokounmpo (Bucks)
> WINNER - Zach LaVine (Wolves)
> Victor Oladipo (Magic)
> Mason Plumlee (Nets)
