What basketball fan doesn’t love a good game of H-O-R-S-E? It’s one of the most classic games of all time. You make a shot, your opponent then attempts to make the same shot. If they miss, they get a letter. The first person to spell out the word Horse, loses. It’s simple and that’s why it’s great.
The best part about Horse is that anyone can play. Justin Timberlake proved that recently, as he took on NBA star Paul George in a game after the Indiana Pacers victory over Miami Heat on Tuesday night.
Check out the pop star as he shows off his ball skills with a shot from the elbow:
I wish there was a full video of the their game, but there’s currently only this Instagram video. There’s also no word yet on who won. If I had to bet, I’d say George. He just got done taking care of Lebron James, he better be able to take down Timberlake in a game of Horse.
As for the Pacers, they’re looking great so far in 2013. They’re currently in first place in the East and it looks like they have the fire power to take down the Heat over a seven game series. They fell just short a year ago, but if George can continue to elevate his game and they stay healthy, Miami should be worried. At this point, it would be shocking to see any other teams besides the Pacers and Heat in the Eastern Conference finals.
