2011 All-Star Weekend: Stephen Curry Wins Taco Bell Skills Challenge

The Taco Bell Skills Challenge pits five of the best young point guards in a challenge of passing and ball handling through an obstacle course. Oklahoma City Thunder point guard Russel Westbrook recorded the fastest time in the opening round navigating the course in 30 seconds. The Warriors Stephen Curry finished second with a time of 34.1 seconds to advance to the championship against Westbrook. 

Rounding out the other times in the first round were Chicago's Derrick Rose with a time of 35.7, Washington's John Wall 39.3, and New Orleans' Chris Paul 42.7. 

Curry saved his best effort for the finals where he finished the course with a very fast time of 28.2 seconds. With Curry's quick time already posted, Russel Westbrook had to take some chances and wasn't able to play it safe on the course. He missed on a couple of passes early and finished with a disappointing time of 44.2 seconds.
