The big men continue to reign supreme in the Skills Challenge.

Indiana Pacers forward Domantas Sabonis took home the 2021 Taco Bell Skills Challenge crown, defeating Orlando Magic center Nikola Vucevic in the Final Round.

After losing in the Skills Challenge Final at last year's All-Star in Chicago, Sabonis became the fourth big man in the past six years to take home the trophy.

With the win, Sabonis also earned $75,000 for the United Negro College Fund (UNCF).

Sabonis advanced to the Final after eliminating Julius Randle in the first round and Luka Doncic in the second round, putting on a display of perfection as he nailed the pass and drilled the 3-pointer on the first attempt in both rounds.

The two-time All-Star is the first player in Indiana Pacers franchise history to win the Skills Challenge.
