Pacers' Paul George suffers severe leg injury in Team USA scrimmage
The 24-year-old was going up to contest James Harden's layup in the fourth quarter.
Team USA coach Mike Krzyzewski announced to the crowd that the scrimmage would be ending prematurely after George had been lifted off the court on a stretcher.
