Watch David Luiz and Olivier Giroud's NBA challenge!

DAVID LUIZ & GIROUD SHOW: Basketball Shoot-Out!

David Luiz and Olivier Giroud went head-to-head in an NBA challenge at Cobham during a live show on The Fifth Stand, our official app, ahead of the New York Knicks' game against Washington Wizard in London tonight. 

The Chelsea pair donned Knicks shirts for the challenge at our training ground gym and had five attempts each to shoot hoops, with the drama going down to the wire. Watch the video above to see who emerged victorious! 

David Luiz and Giroud were the guests on the special Fifth Stand live show, with NBA jerseys given away as prizes to a couple of lucky supporters who had submitted questions via our app. Keep your eyes peeled on the hot topics area of the Connect section, where not only can you interact with other fans, but also be in with a chance of winning prizes in the future! 

The Knicks take on the Wizards in a regular-season game at the O2 Arena, with both David Luiz and Giroud predicting a victory for the New York-based side. Giroud will be one of a number of Chelsea players in attendance at the showpiece fixture. 

The full show is now available to watch on The Fifth Stand, with plenty of other highlights. David Luiz reveals how he helped out Giroud out on the day the Frenchman signed for Chelsea last January, and the duo discuss what it is like to move during the mid-season transfer window. David Luiz signed for Benfica in January and it was also during the first month of the year that he initially moved to Chelsea in 2011. 

There is a big meeting this weekend between Arsenal and Chelsea and that fixture is discussed, as is the busy few weeks we have ahead which include showdowns with Tottenham, in the Carabao Cup, and Manchester City, at the Etihad next month.
