The horrible fall and injury of Pat McCaw in front of the Sacramento King.
Patrick McCaw, player of the Warriors, had to abandon on a stretcher the Golden 1 Center of Sacramento after receiving a spectacular and dangerous fall that made him strike in the lower part of his back with the parquet.
The third quarter of duel between Kings and Warriors was when the one of Golden State faced the hoop to score and there it was with the body of the veteran Vince Carter, with which Patrick McCaw hit. The result was a terrible fall, which subsequently had Patrick McCaw immobilized by the medical services for several minutes on the runway until he was taken out of it on a stretcher. As reported by the Warriors, the player was transferred to UC Davis Hospital for a deeper exploration of his tragic injury.
The blow was so shocking that all the players, the Kings and the Warriors, gathered together on the track to pray for McCaw’s health. Steve Kerr, coach of the Warriors, first showed his anger with Carter and so he made it known to the referees, according to Yahoo Sports, to later console the player himself while medical services were preparing to move to McCaw.
After the first explorations and the tests carried out on McCaw, the news was, with all the caution that must be had in these cases, positive. Thus, as announced by the Warriors themselves, the player underwent an x-ray in the chest and the results showed no damage. Despite a first numbness as soon as the fall occurred, McCaw soon regained the sensations in his legs. Now, in the franchise of Oakland they waited for the results that can throw both the realized scanner and the magnetic resonance to which it will be submitted to McCaw.
Victory of the Warriors in the return of Thompson.
Obviously, the least in a situation like this is the result of the game. They won the Warriors (96-112), which they already did comfortably when everything happened. Klay Thompson returned after his thumb injury and signed 25 points and a remarkable 10/19 in field goals. Kevin Durant, 25 points, 10 rebounds and 5 assists, was also remarkable. The Warriors break a three-game losing streak and today they play another of the NBA’s worst teams, the Suns, and also at home. Golden State is second, and will finish second of the West, with a current balance of 55-21
