Holiday adds Skills Challenge to All-Star duties

Sixers All-Star guard Jrue Holiday was selected as a participant in the Taco Bell Skills Challenge, which takes place February 16, at Toyota Center in Houston as part of State Farm All-Star Saturday Night.

The competition features a six-man field comprised of defending champion Tony Parker of the San Antonio Spurs, Brandon Knight of the Detroit Pistons, Damian Lillard of the Portland Trail Blazers, Jeremy Lin of the Houston Rockets, and Jeff Teague of the Atlanta Hawks.

The 22-year-old Holiday was selected to his first All-Star Game on January 24, becoming the youngest player in franchise history to accomplish the feat in the process.  This season, he ranks 12th in the league in scoring (19.3 ppg) and fourth in assists (8.9 apg).
