Watch a Hornets fan get hit in the face with a basketball

Thursday March 12th, 2015

A pair of fans found a cell phone more interesting than last night's Kings-Hornets game and one of them paid for it with a ball to the face.

Gerald Henderson can't quite get to a high pass from Lance Stephenson, sending the ball flying towards the nose of an unsuspecting fan.

It appears that the woman got a bloody nose to go along with the shock of being blindsided by a basketball.

For some reason courtside in Charlotte is not a very safe place to be, as an errant Gerald Henderson pass felled a fan last season as well.
