Cameraman gets nailed in the face with basketball


This takes some serious dedication. Check out this clip from last night's Blazers-Jazz game where one cameraman on the baseline gets nailed straight in the face with an errant pass. Ouch. That's a direct blow to the skull that would make The Walking Dead proud.

Here's what it looked like from the other side – a dizzying descent into the abyss…


The Blazers beat the Jazz 105-94 to drop Utah to a league worst 4-19 on the season. Anyone who has to work a Jazz game within a couple rows of the court this season better be careful.
