Not even two weeks into the preseason, and of course this happens:
Andrew Bogut got the ball on the left low block, with Pau Gasol on his back. He took a couple dribbles towards the middle then spun back to his left, dropping in the left hand hook. This was at the 9:26 mark of the first quarter.
Running back down court, Bogut began to grimace and hold his lower back. Moments later...
