Conley, LaVine, Quigley and Billups Advance in Complete Train-Wreck
Damn, I miss sports – real sports.
We all do.
On Sunday, the NBA was hoping to add something to help fill the void of sports, but ultimately, failed miserably.
The first round of the first ever H-O-R-S-E contest was an absolute train wreck to say the least. With the quality as brutal as many people’s WiFi, the pre-taped matchups were brutal. From lazy shot selection, to plenty of video lags, to little to no entertaining audio to speak of, the NBA hoped to catch lightning in a bottle, but got struck by the bolt instead.

The lone highlight of the event may have been the all-access look at the incredible basketball court at Mike Conley’s house.
As for the quarterfinals results, we witnessed some shocking upsets.
WNBA star Allie Quigley knocked off Chris Paul in a nail-biter, while NBA legend Chauncey Billups fought off the sharpshooting Trae Young. Meanwhile, Zach LaVine shutout former Boston Celtics great Paul Pierce and Conley made quick worth of recent Basketball Hall of Fame selectee Tamika Catchings.

The semi-finals and the finals will both take place on Thursday night as LaVine will take on Quigley, and Billups will look to advance when he battles it out with Conley.
I would recommend you to tune in, but after Sunday, I’d say it’s completely up to you!
