LeBron James drove the baseline, flew through the air and fell smack into the lens of an NBA TV camera early in the second quarter, cutting his head and remaining on the floor for several seconds.
James cut his head and remaining on the floor for several seconds. He winced in pain and appeared to be bleeding. Golden State went on to defeat Cleveland 103–82 in Game 4 to even the NBA Finals.
After brief attendance from team medical personnel, James appeared OK, rejoining the game and calmly hitting two free throws.
He told ABC at halftime that the wound would not require stitches, and that it was closed up with "glue."
The injury took place in a crowded part of the baseline, which is often littered with cameramen and photographers.
Winik, who said he felt fine following the collision, told ESPN he did not need to clean any blood off of his camera.
If it's any consolation to James, Winik appeared to be blamed for the incident.
