Paul Pierce Among Eight Players To Participate In NBA H-O-R-S-E Tourney


April 9, 2020

The matchups for the NBA’s televised H-O-R-S-E competition are set.

Beginning Sunday, eight past and present NBA and WNBA players will compete in a single-elimination tournament which will be broadcast on ESPN and feature commentary from Mark Jones.

The field includes current NBA stars Chris Paul, Trae Young, Mike Conley Jr. and Zach LaVine, current WNBA star Allie Quigley, WNBA legend Tamika Catchings and NBA legends Paul Pierce and Chauncey Billups.

Here are the first-round matchups:

The winners from the first two games in each group will meet in the semifinals, with the victors advancing to the championship game. The semifinals and finals both will take place next Thursday night.

Dunking is prohibited — sorry, LaVine — and all participants will play remotely in isolated locations. Typical H-O-R-S-E rules will apply.

Our prediction: Chris Paul dominates.
