Miami Heat forward LeBron James was straight up balling for Miami tonight with 33 points, 7 rebounds, and 4 steals. The Heat were cruising to victory when James drove down the lane and was hit in the face by Thunder big man Serge Ibaka. Somehow, James managed to finish with a dunk despite suffering an injury to his nose.
He went down with a bloody nose and stayed down on the floor and left with a towel over his nose. He briefly went to the bench area, and then left the court area. Heat coach Erik Spoelstra gave an update to LeBron's injury:
Spoelstra on LeBron's nose: "Swollen nose, bleeding, will be evaluated back in Miami."— Bill Reiter (@foxsportsreiter) February 21, 2014
Twitter had some funny reactions to LeBron's injury including what mask he'll wear if he has to wear one after this injury:
