Boston Celtics guard Jaylen Brown went through a terrifying fall Thursday night.

Brown smashed the ball home on the fast break against the Minnesota Timberwolves, but things took a horrible turn.

He hit the ground hard, and couldn’t get up. Brown smacked the ground so hard that the sound of contact is guaranteed to make you cringe.

It doesn’t get much scarier than that fall. Luckily, Brown tweeted out that he would be okay but had a headache.

I have no doubt he had a headache. He smacked his body on the wood in terrifying fashion. I’m not a doctor, but I’ve had enough concussions to recognize the symptoms and signs. Brown looked like he didn’t know what world he was when after he hit the ground.

It’s a good thing he’s going to be okay, but that was so scary. My guess is that he’s going to be very hesitant to dunk again in the near future.
