The NBA's 2022 All-Star Weekend culminates on Sunday with the Team LeBron vs. Team Durant matchup at Cleveland's Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse. But first up is the Saturday night preview of the athletes' talents, with elite NBA players competing in the Skills Challenge, 3-Point Contest and Slam-Dunk Contest.
The Skills Contest was added in 2003, and this year it will pit three teams on an obstacle course where the players can showcase their abilities in dribbling, passing and shooting.
One team will feature Darius Garland, Evan Mobley and Jarrett Allen of the Cavaliers, another will include the Antetokounmpo brothers -- Giannis, Thanasis and Alex -- and Team Rook is made up of Cade Cunningham, Scottie Barnes and Josh Giddey.
The 2022 NBA All-Star Skills Challenge is set to kick off Saturday's festivities at 8 p.m. ET. Team Rooks is the -150 favorite (risk $150 to win $100) in the latest NBA All-Star Skills Challenge odds from Caesars Sportsbook. Team Cavs comes in at +250, followed by Team Antetokounmpo at +400.
Before making any 2022 NBA All-Star Skills Challenge picks, you'll want to see what elite NBA expert Mike Barner has to say.
Barner is one of the most respected voices in the industry, and his work has appeared in Sports Illustrated and on Yahoo, RotoWire and KFFL. He's also been featured on ESPN Radio. He digs deep into the data, examining team trends and projecting game outcomes. If there's anybody who can spot an edge in a matchup or identify a player in position to break out, it's him.
Barner's expertise has been on full display lately. He is on an amazing 85-67-2 run with his last 155 against-the-spread picks, returning $1,125 to $100 players!
