2012 NBA All-Star Game: Skills Challenge Preview

Six talented point guards will square off in the NBA Skills Challenge on Saturday night, participating in an obstacle course that involves maneuvering, shooting, dribbling and passing.

The field will consist of the Celtics Rajon Rondo, Spurs Tony Parker, Thunder's Russell Westbrook, Cavaliers Kyrie Irving, Wizards John Wall and Nets Deron Williams. Defending champion Stephen Curry of the Warriors is unable to participate because of an injury.

In previous years, the most difficult aspect to the course has proven to be the bounce pass.

Game information and TV Schedule as follows:

All-Star Event Order Number: Two

Location: Amway Center, Orlando, Fla.

Time: Events start on Sat, Feb. 25 at 8:30 p.m. EDT.

TV: TNT
