NBA fans love hustle from their players, but sometimes things go awry. That’s what happened on Saturday night after Philadelphia 76ers forward Robert Covington dove into the stands to try to save a loose ball against the Cleveland Cavaliers. The play came in the fourth quarter with under two minutes left and the Sixers down by just one point. Covington leapt into the far sideline just near the Cavaliers bench. He appeared to turn his ankle and land awkwardly on his back. The Cleveland floor has a small lip after the first row of seats that may have played a part in the injury. Cleveland would go on to score on the play, and Covington had to be helped off the floor. The Cavaliers went on to win, 105-98..
