Another video that’s getting plenty of airplay and talk online is when Tristan Thompson fell on a row of people, as reported by Fan Sided when Tristan took a dive for a loose ball during Sunday’s Game 4, and because the chairs were connected, he caused nearly the entire row to go down on their backs.

As far as Crowder’s injuries after landing on the floor, his teammates helped him up as he was taken to the locker room to be inspected — but not before exchanging heated words with members of the Cavs on their bench. Jae endured a sprain to his left knee and wasn’t expected to return to the game. It was a truly physical game that saw Kevin Love of the Cavaliers also suffering an injury when his arm was pinned by Kelly Olynyk.

LeBron James was on the bench getting stretched and treated for cramps. As reported by the Inquisitr, LeBron is taking a more serious foray into films, as his new role in the movie Trainwreck shows him starring as a Downton Abbey loving ball player.
