The Bulls’ Zach LaVine and the Sky’s Allie Quigley will be back on the court this weekend.

The NBA, the National Basketball Players Association and ESPN will stream a HORSE tournament on ESPN’s app.

The NBA HORSE Challenge will have eight participants. The quarterfinals are to be shown Sunday and the semifinals and final on April 16.

The quarterfinal matchups are LaVine against NBA retiree and ESPN analyst Paul Pierce; Quigley against Chris Paul of the Oklahoma City Thunder; Trae Young of the Atlanta Hawks against former NBA player and ESPN analyst Chauncey Billups; and WNBA great and 2020 Basketball Hall of Fame inductee Tamika Catchings against Mike Conley Jr. of the Utah Jazz.
