Found February 14, 2013 on It's Always Sunny in Detroit:
Late in the first quarter of Thursday’s game between the Heat and Thunder, Kevin Durant took a nasty fall while going up for a rebound.  As he was reaching for the rebound, Durant awkwardly leaned backwards and twisted his body to the point where he couldn’t break his fall. Durant fell directly on the left side of his body, with it appearing as though his hip and his face took the brunt of the contact.  After being examined by the Thunder medical staff, Durant returned to action on the very next deadball. So while I ate a delicious Valentine’s Day dinner made by my wife, KD ate hardwood.  I win.
