Gary Harris went strong to the rack and was hit hard midway through the fourth quarter of Friday night’s game between the Denver Nuggets and Oklahoma City Thunder. The result was a painful fall for the veteran guard, who lay on the ground for some time before finally getting back up and remaining in the game.

Here’s a look at the collision that caused Harris’ tumble.
