There are times when players in the association have to be careful when attempting slam dunks and during tonight’s Trail Blazers-Bucks game, Nicolas Batum had a scary moment.

Here’s another angle of the play which shows Batum’s big fall from a Vine captured by KWAPT:
Thankfully for Blazers fans, Batum was able to get up from the fall and walk under his own power
