As we have previously noted here on That NBA Lottery Pick, if you happen to be sitting close at an NBA game, you have to keep your head on a swivel.
During last night’s tilt between the Toronto Raptors/Chicago Bulls, one female fan sitting close to the action at the United Center had the unfortunate incident.
In the fourth quarter of play, Chicago Bulls forward Taj Gibson was trying to find teammate Mike James but the ball ended up sailing over his head.
Watch as the female fan in the grey sweater ends up being the recipient of the pass as she takes a quick shot to the left side of her jaw:
