The Miami Heat are hosting the Oklahoma City Thunder in the NBA game of the week. Everyone was eager to see the Kevin Durant against LeBron James match up. Those hopes took a shot in the face when, well, LeBron did.

After being struck in the face he ran halfway across the court to the side line and kneeled down for a while as he milked it. After staying there for a bit teammates came over to check on him, fans took photos, then he stood up.

He walked around like he was confused as he tried to regain composure then he lined up and went back to playing like nothing happened.
