The 19th Taco Bell Skills Challenge at State Farm Arena in Atlanta will feature five NBA All-Stars, headlined by Luka Doncic of the Dallas Mavericks and Chris Paul of the Phoenix Suns.

Paul is making a record fifth appearance in the competition and first since 2011, while Doncic is making his second appearance.

Joining them are 2020 runner-up Domantas Sabonis of the Indiana Pacers and second-time participant Nikola Vucevic of the Orlando Magic, alongside first-timers Julius Randle of the New York Knicks and Portland Trail Blazers swingman Robert Covington.

The Taco Bell Skills Challenge obstacle course will test players' dribbling, passing and 3-point shooting skills in a three-round, single-elimination format.

The player who finishes each individual matchup with the fastest time advances to the next round, with a one-on-one battle for the trophy.

The Taco Bell Skills Challenge will take place prior to the All-Star Game on Sunday, March 7.
