Lin performs in NBA skills competition (Chinese)

In this edition of the Mandarin Minute, Howard Chen AKA  陳定豪 talks about what went down in the Dunk Contest and the Skills Challenge.

Jeremy Lin completed his dribble, pass, and shoot drills in 35.8 seconds, a highly respectable mark in a field of six players.

However, Trail Blazers rookie Damian Lillard won the contest in 28.8 seconds.

Meanwhile, the dunk contest was pretty entertaining. It eventually got whittled down to a final matchup between Utah's Jeremy Evans and Toronto's Terrence Ross.

Both guys pleased the crowd with their jams, but in the end, by a 58-percent vote by the fans via text or Twitter, Ross was crowned the 2013 All-Star Slam Dunk Champion. Ross' final dunk was a between-the-legs dunk done while leaping over a child.
