Tonight, there’s a huge match up between two NBA playoff contenders as the Golden State Warriors traveled on the road to take on the Indiana Pacers. While the game has just gotten underway, the action has been a little minimal.

Well, that is if you’re the camera man behind the basket that had a bit of a run-in with Pacers star David West.

On this play, West got the ball just beyond the free throw line and took it right to the basket past Andre Iguodala. As the ball drained through the hoop, West just couldn’t seem to keep his balance and the camera man was the one who suffered.


No one ever said it was safe sitting behind that basket, especially with these two teams on the floor.
