Celtics' Tatum wins Skills Challenge

Boston will return to action against the Bucks in Milwaukee on Thursday.

At Saturday night's Taco Bell Skills Challenge, Tatum got his wish. And it couldn't have been earned in a more dramatic fashion.

Tatum took on a red-hot Trae Young in the final and the Atlanta Hawks youngster wasn't messing around as he jumped out to a big lead.

After they both made the lay-up, the pair turned around and headed back toward the other basket for the final stage - the 3-point shot.

But Tatum threw up a prayer from halfcourt before Young could get his shot off and sunk it, leaving the crowd stunned.

The 20-year-old Celtics sophomore watched as the ball sailed through the air, thudded off the backboard and swished through the net, knocking Young's only attempt off target in the process.

Two days, two wins at 2019 All-Star Weekend for Celtics forward Jayson Tatum.

Tatum says the trophy will go to his mother's home. "I play basketball and I've just got to control what I can control, and I love being on the Celtics".

It's not just a competition for guards anymore, as forwards like Jayson Tatum and Kyle Kuzma and even centers Nikola Vucevic and Nikola Jokic look to prove they can handle and pass it with the best of them.

Players didn't practice the course, and Tatum said the chest pass was the hardest part. Young is quick, has a lightning-fast release on his shot and is an innovative passer, but this is an event that has gotten away from true point guards in recent years.

Nuggets forward Nikola Jokic lost to Tatum in the semifinals, missing his 3-pointer as Tatum's dropped from the left side of the key.
