The Houston Rockets inserted Patrick Beverly into the starting line-up for Game 2 of their first round playoff match-up against the Oklahoma City Thunder to bring some much needed grit that the Rockets lacked in Game 1.
But who new that this one little line-up change would have such a big impact on the future of the NBA Playoffs.
With 5:34 seconds left in the 2nd quarter, a whistle blows for a timeout.
As Thunder guard Russell Westbrook pulls up to stop play, Beverly dives in and takes a swipe at the ball, spinning Westbrook to the ground.
Westbrook gets up in obvious pain, hobbles to the scoring desk and smacks it with his right hand.
Right then, Westbrook knew something was wrong.
And now, so do we.
Westbrook will be undergoing surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his right knee. His return to unknown.
"Our team is disappointed for Russell," Thunder GM Sam Presti said in a news conference at the Thunder practice facilities in Oklahoma City on Friday.
So are Thu...
