Observations from Chris Paul's quick exit from the NBA HORSE Challenge

Yet her status skyrocketed on Sunday for simply winning a game of H-O-R-S-E.

The NBA's HORSE competition got started on Sunday night with a major upset as the betting favorite, Trae Young, fell to Chauncey Billups in the opening round that was, well, slow to get going. The idea of the challenge involves matching baskets, and the player who makes shots that their opponent does not replicate, wins.

Former DePaul women's star Allie Quigley has made her name as one of the best shooters in the WNBA as a member of the Chicago Sky. The first player in each game to accumulate the letters "H-O-R-S-E" after failing to match five shots is eliminated.

Thunder guard Chris Paul, Hawks guard Trae Young and six more current and former National Basketball Association and WNBA players will compete in a H-O-R-S-E Tournament that tips-off at 6 p.m. on ESPN. Active NBA stars Mike Conley and Zach LaVine managed to advance to the semifinals beating Tamika Catchings and Paul Pierce, respectively.

Quigley and Paul went shot for shot to start off the matchup before Paul picked up an H. The WNBA star then drilled a shot while sitting down that Paul couldn't reciprocate.

Quigley will now take on LaVine on Thursday in a battle of Chicago to determine who makes the same-day final, while Billups and Conley meet in the other semi-final. "That's pretty cool that we're both representing in the next round". I gave it 5 min.
