On December 18th, Paul George took on the Heat hoping to show what he couldn’t do in the playoffs last year: that he’s up to LeBron’s level.
But then, just as he started playing well, a horrible thing happened. He got shot from the stands in the 2nd quarter.
Nobody has any clue who was behind it, or the motivation for it. NBA officials are investigating.
Here’s the play:

Awful. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Pacers.
Amazingly, he didn’t bleed all over the court and managed to continue playing.
Here’s another look at it, video of the horrible accident:

Just terrible. Thank God he survived.
