Domantas Sabonis began NBA All-Star weekend with some excitement Saturday.

The Indiana Pacers forward put on a show in the Taco Bell Skills Challenge. Sabonis made a run all the way to the finals before Miami Heat center Bam Adebayo’s triple from the top of the arc clinched the victory.

On his way to the finals, Sabonis narrowly beat Boston’s Jayson Tatum in the first round and then Milwaukee’s Khris Middleton in the second.

Sabonis’ weekend isn’t finished yet. The elected All-Star reserve was selected by Team LeBron and will play alongside other stars such as Anthony Davis, Luka Doncic and James Harden in the All-Star Game on Sunday night.
