The penultimate night of NBA All-Star weekend saw player showcasing their individual talent as Spencer Dinwiddie, Devin Booker and Donovan Mitchell coming out on top in their respective challenges.
Brooklyn Nets point guard Spencer Dinwiddie won the NBA Taco Bell Skills Challenge by beating Chicago Bulls forward Lauri Markkanen in the championship round.
Utah Jazz rookie Donovan Mitchell won the Slam Dunk Contest after he beat Los Angeles’ Larry Nance Jr. in the championship round.
However, Dallas Mavericks’ Dennis Smith was not happy with the judges’ decisions after he came third overall. He used Twitter to compare his first dunk, which was given 39 points, with the dunk missed by Victor Oladipo, which had 31 points.
What that look like?
