Towel Boy at Nets-Raptors Game Narrowly Dodges Tyler Hansbrough

Raptors forward Tyler Hansbrough can add towel boy to the list of people he's almost hit on an NBA court (See: Hansbrough's confrontation or lack thereof with Metta World Peace during the pre-season).

With the Nets and Raptors tied up at 90 with 3:15 remaining in the fourth quarter, the 6'9", 250 pound forward came up with a rather unlikely steal from Brooklyn big man Andray Blatche and began racing down the court for what turned out to be a missed layup.

Upon closer inspection, it appeared that once Psycho T crossed the half-court line, an unsuspecting ball boy had to dive onto the sidelines. In doing so, he not only narrowly avoided injuring himself and Hansbrough, but as you'll see in the footage, the referee as well.

It would've been one of those rare instances in which a non-player injures a player during an NBA game -- an uncommon, but not completely unheard of occurrence:

The Nets won by four, by the way, but perhaps it would've been a one possession game had Hansbrough not almost tripped over the poor kid.
