The duo of Blazers star Damian Lillard and Jazz rookie Trey Burke won the Taco Bell Skills Challenge at NBA All-Star Weekend by a tenth of a second on Saturday, edging the team of Magic rookie Victor Oladipo and 76ers rookie Michael-Carter Williams on Burke’s last-second lay-in.

Burke missed two jumpers at the top of the key in the finals before making his third attempt, then racing down the floor to try and beat Oladipo and Carter-Williams’ time of 45.3 seconds. His finger-roll layup went through the net just in time. Literally — at 45.2 seconds.
