The Golden State Warriors saw their championship chances flash before their eyes Monday night.
That's because, NBA MVP Stephen Curry took a hard, nasty backwards fall on his head, neck and back during the second quarter. The scary play occurred during the second quarter, when Curry went to block a Trevor Ariza shot, but instead went up and over the Houston Rockets small forward, suffering with the hard fall.
According to ESPN, Curry underwent a series of tests, none of which determined a concussion.
Curry wound up missing 12 minutes of the game—which turned out to be a 128-115 Warriors' loss—but did return to the game and finished with 23 points in 31 minutes. After the game, Curry said he feels "pretty good," but acknowledged the scary fall.
"I was in the air for a long time..." Curry said, "just trying to brace yourself."
