2012 All Star Skills Challenge: Tony Parker Sizzles, Deron Williams Struggles In Finals

In a field consisting of six of the league's most skilled point guards, Tony Parker of the Spurs shined brighter than the rest in winning the 2012 All Star Skills challenge with a final round time of 32.8 seconds.

Deron Williams, who had previously participated in the event, cruised through the first round of the Skills Challenge, setting a new opening round record with a time of 28.3 seconds.

Joining Parker and Williams in the final round was Boston's Rajon Rondo, who was forced to break (and eventually win) a first round tie with Washington's John Wall.

Williams struggled in the final round, missing several jump shots from the top of the key, and eventually finished with a time of 41.1 seconds, placing him third.
