Due to social distancing, the players will shoot on isolated home courts in a single-elimination contest. The first player to accumulate the letters "H-O-R-S-E" after failing to match five shots is eliminated.

Of course, I'm now kicking myself for not watching more basketball while I still had the chance, but thankfully, the NBA is doing what it can to fill the void, as it recently got some players to take part in a 2K tournament and chose to follow that up by putting together a HORSE competition.

H-O-R-S-E is a shooting exercise game in which players must describe the shot they will attempt before making it, with dunks prohibited. The first players in each group to win two games will move on to the semifinals, where they will face the winners of the other group.

Sunday, April 12, 7-9 p.m.

According to the announcement, Jazz guard Mike Conley, former NBA stars Chauncey Billups and Paul Pierce, newly-elected Hall-of-Famer Tamika Catchings, and three-time WNBA All-Star Allie Quigley will fill out the eight-person field for the event.

LaVine competed in the National Basketball Association 2K20 Players Tournament, losing in the first round last week.

In addition to providing a much-needed escape, sports fans will be happy to know that State Farm is donating $200,000 to coronavirus relief efforts on behalf of the competition and its participants.

Sunday's quarter-final match-ups will send Young against Billups and Conley against Catchings to determine one semi-final pairing.
