Oakland native Damian Lillard defended his title as winner of the Taco Bell Skills Challenge, with a little help from Trey Burke of the Utah Jazz.

The NBA added a new relay element to the 2014 skills challenge, with Lillard and Burke of the Western Conference narrowly beating Michael Carter-Williams (76ers) 
and Victor Oladipo (Magic) representing the Eastern Conference.

Burke and Lillard posted a time of 45.2 seconds in the championship round, just one-tenth of a second quicker than Carter-Williams and Oladipo's 45.3 seconds.
