Boston Celtics veteran guard Marcus Smart was not having a great day at the office against the Oklahoma City Thunder on Sunday.

Smart was hit with a technical at halftime after arguing with officials. He later found himself on the receiving end of a football-like play.

Check out Smart as he goes flying after being hit right in the head. Luckily, this did not result in a serious injury. After all, it looked like Smart landed awkwardly on his lower back.

Some had concluded that Smart flopped on this play. While he did sell the fall, he was hit right in the face. Again, he’s lucky no injuries resulted in the play.

Though, the XFL would be proud.
