During last night’s Denver Nuggets/Oklahoma City Thunder affair, Nuggets star Carmelo Anthony got knocked unconscious late in the 3rd quarter and ended up laying down on the court unaware of what was going on around him.
Then one of the strangest moments that I have ever seen in an NBA game happened.
For some reason, instead of stopping the play to have Denver’s trainers check on the health of Carmelo Anthony, the referees let play resume. So the Thunder inbounded the ball with Carmelo Anthony sprawled out on the opposite side of the court. Thankfully due to a head’s up play by JR Smith, the Nuggets didn’t lose any points due to this little error in judgment by the officials.
Carmelo ended up returning later early in the 4th quarter as the Nuggets went onto win the game by the score of 98-94.
